Projected Music is a 5-inch zoetrope picture disc containing 26 locked grooves. Each loop is 1.33 seconds in duration cut at 45rpm reaching a total playing time of 34.58 seconds although the loops are intended to be played at any speed. In the possession of two or more disks, the listener can interact with a modular album whereby the source material is open to interpretation. Despite its minimalist size and composition, this release is intended as an LP. With the expansive nature of the turntable, there are almost limitless possibilities.
Remixes by Maria Chavez, Philip Jeck, Janek Schaefer, Mariam Rezaei, Me, Claudius, Graham Dunning and Tom Richards will accompany the 5-inch as a free download. The official release will be on 29th November at The Old Baths in Hackney Wick with live performances by Sculpture, Janek Schaefer and Mariam Rezaei. An ensemble of 26 turntables for 26 locked grooves will improvise during the intervals.

SHOULD A GARDENER MANIFEST, OBSERVE WHAT GIFTS THE BEING BESTOWS
Should a Gardener manifest, observe what gifts the being bestows. Though we do not understand them, they are our guides to this realm.
Sculpture is electronic music producer, Dan Hayhurst, and visual artist, Reuben Sutherland, on a freewheeling excursion through temporary forms of digital composition, analogue electronics, comic strips, sci-fi, pop, psychedelia and multisensory perception.
Their A/V performances play with temporal and genre signifiers, transitory possibilities and free association. Sonic artefacts found at the junk strata are manipulated through digital sampling and analogue tape looping. Timestretch until the portal appears. The pre-cinema mechanism of the zoetrope – perceptual slices arranged to convey motion – is updated in a physical-digital hybrid of video camera, turntable and a library of rotary patterns. Projecting geometric designs and absurdist visions in hallucinatory loops and jumps.
For LIMINALITY [TEMPORAL IMPRESSIONS] Sculpture propose to project you into a zone part garden, library, filing system and memory. Occupied by geodesic blossom and visiting organic entities tending recombinant physical and audible arrangements. Kinetic, sonic and performative elements will provide temporary conditions amenable to growth.
Recorded during our mind fraying (for us at least) 3 day audio/visual installation/performance in the Funkhaus Berlin for Ableton Loop, November 2017. Thanks everyone who dropped by the Polymedia Studio for some auxiliary perceptual stimulation.
