Amateur music production
in collaboration with Jerszy Seimour Design Workshop
for “Coalition of Amateurs by Jerszy Seymour Design Workshop” MUDAM, Luxembourg
From 12th to 14th August 2009
Recently, the media that surround us has changed from analogue to digital
for instance, photography, film and music. These days, most sounds are recorded only digitally.
I feel uneasy about digitalisation of music because I wonder if they will survive to next generation.
Digital based music media is just “data”, in other words, “virtual”.
When objects lose physicality, they turn into virtual.
I strongly believe that record is still the latest, and the finest media in analogue recording technology.
If you think of Edison’s gramophone record, it is clear that records can survive and can be listened
to after hundreds of years.
Record is the only commonly available, playable media which is physical and in this project
I used this diminished format as the raw materiel.
In “Coalition of Amateurs”, I would like to propose “Amateur music production system”.
To sum up this, making self music production system from recoding to pressing records
and then finally selling records in the museum.
