Vinyl Terror and Horror by Steve E. on Mon Apr 21, 2014 10:31 am
Who did this? I love it.



Update, courtesy of Tape: It is actually two women who have a website called http://vinylterrorandhorror.com.

Vinyl -terror & -horror is a collaboration between Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen.

Our approach to music starts from a visual and sculptural practice. Turntable deconstruction and rearrangement of the vinyl media in all imaginative ways is strongly influencing our sounds.

We are working in the field of cinematic soundscapes with a high tolerance level of possible hi- fi disasters.

Sentimental heartbreaking sequences where the opera singer is looping and the birds are singing backwards……. untill the breakdown of needles and chaos taking over. Cut up and mistreated records looping and creaking from dust and sloppy treatment. Pick-up`s being pushed disr...

Record dream by Nermal on Thu Apr 17, 2014 2:09 pm
I dreamt a friend found me a strange record at a yard sale. It was made out of bubblegum-pink rubber, as found in old fashioned whoopie cushions.

The record was shaped like an upside-down Devo hat, which is to say it had four stepped levels, each with a band of audio on it. You had to fold down the upper levels to play the lower levels. My friend apologized for its low sound quality, but I was amazed it existed.

The record was called "the Four Seasons of Chomalox," which is wrong, because, as Sport Murphy rhapsodizes in the link below, there are eight seasons of Chromalox.

Not sure what any of it means, but there it is.
