A series of 7” records of 1 minute tracks and lock grooves. Focus of each volume is on one particular instrument and on the ways in which invited artists address the specifics of duration as defined by the given format. Duration here is not considered as a mere quantity of time, but as the subjective relations that we establish within time’s dimension. Twelve participants to the first two releases contribute one minute-long track and two locked grooves (of 1.8 seconds at 33.1/3 rpm). Each record has six 1-minute tracks and twelve locked grooves. Either approached as open works of art or just as dj tools, the records in this series straightforwardly demand an active mode of listening. I/D/V 02, the second 7” in the series, focuses on a range of original approaches to guitar playing and recording. Ian Epps, Kenta Nagai, Annette Krebs, Chris Forsyth, Giuseppe Ielasi and Koen Holtkamp are all well-known for their idiosyncratic styles, and recognized as contemporary innovators of the instrument. Various extended and traditional techniques are articulated in this compendium through electric, acoustic, twelve-string and fretless guitar. Letterpress printed sleeve with dry deboss on fabriano rosaspina. Edition: 400 numbered copies.
