Plattenspieler with Gilles Peterson

Two turntables, a camera, a video projector, two mics, a screen. Those are the parameters for the series Plattenspieler, in which for almost 10 years Thomas Meinecke has invited various partners to talk about music, their cultural assumptions and their visual preferences. 

Every guest chooses 10-20 records to play during the evening, as does the host Thomas Meinecke. He doesn't know which tunes his guests are choosing, but he always carefully chooses a fitting selection for each session. Guests are allowed to stop a tune, tell the host if they like it or not, ask for a rewind, etc. While the audience take their seats, Thomas plays one track to the end in order to start the conversation right there.
