idea and love of "the record"
6 groups of musicians created tracks with 6 sculptures/instruments built by artists Mathilda Bennett-Greene, Jonas Pequeno, Angus McCrum & Joseph Bradley Hill. Each group had 6 hours to create a track sampling only the instruments and vocals. The groups were as follows:
1 - DJ Dairy & MC Spritz (black midi), Aga Ujma, Silkarmour & Beth Dawson
2 - Bathwater 404, Devenny 404, Eliot 404 & Sonny 404 (404 Guild)
3 - Glows (Sorry) & Felix Raman
4 - Martha Skye Murphy, Kiran Leonard, Corpse Boy & Cajm (Powerplant)
5 - Bianca Scout, Jacob Samuel & j b glazer (Curl), Cam Molloy, Harald Smart & Elena Isolini
6 - Clottie Cream & Rosy Bones (Goat Girl), Richard Limper & Horse Whisperer
Concept by Joseph Bradley Hill inspired by Luigi Russolo’s 1913 Futurist manifesto “The Art of Noise” and his six families of noise - musicians selected by Marco Pini, Maddy O’Keefe, Joseph Bradley Hill & Bianca Scout.
1. Musicians may only bring things that modify sound, not make sound themselves.
2. Vocals are allowed, but any lyrics must be written in the studio time.
3. The tracks must only use noise sampled from the sculptures and the voice.
4. The tracks must be completed within each respective six hour session.
