This is the
studio in which Chris Weaver and I created the
audio for a limited edition vinyl record made in the UAE. The studio itself is decorated with imagery inspired by hacked Atari coding, which we also took as the
basis for a musical graphical score.
This artist’s edition, strictly limited
to 100 and decorated with a piece of handwoven music, is named after the
exhibition in which A Model Studio featured: Systems for a Score. Collaborations made in inside include vocals, school children making musique concrete, tanbura, oud and rababa laid over various forms of sound art and electronica.
