33 Revolutions per Minute

Section image

A catalogue of sound samples made up of one-second extracts taken from every album in our record collection and worked into a sound installation. Each musical style is channeled through a speaker. There are as many speakers as there are styles, creating a sonic landscape in the exhibition space. Each (one-second) extract is played randomly avoiding any definitive editing allowing for an infinite number of variations. To avoid a total sonic blast, moments of silence of variable lengths are introduced into each channel. The duration of the sound piece is approximately 20 minutes.
