**Limited edition of 100 LPs packaged in deluxe tip-on gatefold jackets**Reflecting the artist's passion for cinema, VHS consists of audio recordings that were produced through an openVhsRecorder using manipulated videotapes. Most source sound is taken from background parts edited from old tapes of obscure and underground cinema. Mechanical memories and the suggestions of past cinematographic sets are converted and re-contextualized in order to explore the expressive possibilities of an archaic media. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi
Andrea Borghi (b.1974) is an art teacher and sound artist based in Pietrasanta, Lucca. His activities in the field of sound art and installations include being a founding member of the electronic improvisation quartet VipCancro and running the label Lisca Records. In recent years his primary artistic focus has been on the study of "substitutability" of materials and producing sound directly from concrete discs - an approach he refers to as "Discomateria". He is also experimenting with other materials such as glass, plastic, metal, and more recently, marble. With Discomateria, sound is generated in real time playing the discs on a prepared turntable.
Discomateria objects are also visual works of art in their own right.
