Hello all! The fourth episode of my 2018 radio art series "The Long Play" is available now on Mixcloud.
"The Long Play" is an intense, long-form examination of distressed vinyl, specifically a single LP from my collection of found records. Through extreme speed change, time-shifting, compression and EQ, each track of the LP has been stretched out to approximately 30 minutes, virtually erasing, in some cases, the original musical content, and taking on the character of a "field recording", a strange and surreal psychogeography of a place that does not exist. One track of the 12 track LP will be released per month over the course of 2018.
The result sounds very industrial... like it.
That definitely explains it, thanks! And after watching the video, I can understand that you don't use your good records, pretty intense.
This is amazing a great piece of sound art! Excellent job job Mr Davison. Intense this piece surely is! Kudos to you.
Thanks, Chris! That kind of positive feedback is what makes it all worthwhile. Much appreciated!
Really enjoyed this! I like the idea of manipulating something that already exists into something new. Records are ideal for this and slowing things down usually brings out interesting textures. Nice work!
