Lo Recordings LLP 11
Made in the UK
This is a compilation of audio tracks and artworks from the Root exhibition. "In May 1997 Lo Recordings received a DAT tape containing 30 different one-minute guitar pieces by Thurston Moore. Each piece was copied onto individual tapes and packaged in custom designed vaccum cleaner bags. One hundred bags were sent out to a selection of visual artists and musicans, inviting them to create a brand new work utilising the original piece as a starting point." (Quotation from the linernotes of the poster.)
Vinyl version of LCD011 contains 38 of the musical contributions, and comes in a box with label artwork by Cedric Christie, Joe Ewart, Martin Fletcher, Savage Pencil & Gavin Tork, and also includes a poster featuring a selection of images from the Root exhibition. Contributors to the 'Root' exhibition included Yoko Ono, David Bowie, Angela Bulloch, Russell Mills, Sarah Lucas and Damien Hirst.
