contacting the lathe

I recorded the new raw to column and horizon videos with my GoPro camera. I had to make a custom attachment so the camera could mount to the body of the lathe safely while the wood was spinning.

for the raw to column 04 (contact) and the upcoming horizon 05 video, I clipped piezo contact microphones directly to the turning tools and the body of the lathe itself. I ran these into the audio in of the GoPro. I’m wondering what kinds of timbres + rhythms start to emerge from the wood turning process.
