VARIOUS ARTISTS: Sounds of Silence VINYL
s you know, we pretty much avoid vinyl, but this is an exception, since it makes sense. Its a conceptual notion. These are silences intended as silences, for a variety of reasons, political, artistic, demonstrative - taken from various previous releases (by the likes of And Warhol, Sly and the Family Stone, Crass, Yves Klein, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Barclay, Sonic Youth, Whitehouse, John Denver, yes that John Denver, the West Coast PopArt Ensemble, Robert Wyatt, Orbital and many others - the tracks are all quite short). 30 tracks in all each taken carefully from the records or CDs from which they were made, reproducing, Cagelike, any blemishes or surface noises. Nice plundergraphic gatefold sleeve and excellent, intelligent and informative sleevenotes. Interestingly no copyright or mechanical right information. This is an LP that will change with every playing and you will hear it change. Limited Edition of 250 copies. We have 5 of them.
