A new record label experiment by The Made Shop (that’s us!). More information coming soon (as we make it up).
Our first experiment will be reversing the traditional music/artwork order. Over the course of the year we’ll be creating and releasing 12 speculative singles artwork and packaging for songs that don’t yet exist. Cover art, track name, and hypothetical band name. Then we’ll retroactively produce and release the music on vinyl. If you’re interested in participating, let us know.
Immaterial Arching: Circular Space 1971-73 Sound tube
The inward arch of a passage architecture. The construction of this tone tube from eight wooden posts with four loudspeakers attached to each was used to research parallel lapsing tone spaces. The loudspeakers are programmed transversely to the direction of walking. Whether Swaying Space, Circular Space or Arched Space: they do not refer to one single person but are measurable and can be experienced in the total length of the tube.
"Anyone who has become entranced by the sound of water drops in the darkness of a ruin can attest to the extraordinary capacity of the ear to carve a volume into the void of darkness. The space traced by the ear becomes a cavity sculpted in the interior of the mind."
