about

A few years ago I obtained a vinyl record with silence recorded to it on both sides. It's silence has been broken.

On Side A is carved the title of the album and my name. On Side B is carved an extract from John Cage's Lecture on Nothing.

In homage to the ideas surrounding Cage's work the result was recorded live with the windows open. No attempt has been made to minimize external noise.

A weight was applied to the needle cartridge to stop the record from sticking.

I have nothing to say and I am saying it.
