Dale Lloyd: Akasha_For Record
Side 1: Part 1 (the image shown above)
Side 2. Part 2
Akasha_For Record is a two-part composition, filled with highly dynamic intricacies very carefully arranged. Rich micro-detail meets subtle emotional resonance in a spellbinding work created specifically for the vinyl format:
“When Colin kindly invited me to create work for his picture disc series, I decided to do so with the intention that the vinyl record format would be an ongoing contributor to the work and each copy would contribute different details by virtue of how each record was made and according to how each might accumulate dust, pops, crackles, etcetera over time. Indeed when Colin and I listened to each of the test pressings, we discovered that each copy did in fact add sonic elements to the work at certain points that the other copies did not; and variance also occurred according to the type of turntable, stylus, cartridge, and stereo system used for playback.” (Dale Lloyd)
Akasha_For Record is an opulent listening experience and one that will reward close, repeated scrutiny. The record’s artwork consists of two gorgeous, lightly manipulated, photographic images by Lloyd. The sound / vision combination of Akasha_for Record is truly intriguing and utterly beautiful.” (Elevator Bath)
