Rude Mechanic: Beaconsfield
1/09, 2/11 & 2/16 written and produced by Robin Rimbaud with Rude Mechanic and Pan Sonic
Made in the UK
Notes: "In 1996 a symbiotic relationship was set up in the public gallery space of Beaconsfield between visual artists David Crawford and Hayley Newman and sound artists Mika Vainio and Ilpo Väisänen - Pan Sonic. All four worked daily for five weeks linked by sound inputs and outputs. The live installation featured an industrial power climber, a video oscilloscope, Pan Sonic's precious sound machine, the typewriter, and the original prototype for Turbo Sound's earth-shaking Floodlight PA system. [...] The process was animated by the input of invited musicians and artists, each making a six hour injection into the mutating sound environment. [...] Over the five weeks,one hundred hours were recorded and mixed live by Pan Sonic from which these thirty tracks have been extracted."CD produced in a limited edition of 1000.
