Daniel Eatock Picture Disc
Once upon a time I showed my friend Andy (Lost Toys/Grubby Mitts/etc.) a book I just bought, ‘Imprint’ by Daniel Eatock. 4 years later, this is happening:
Each 7″ disc will be unique, with the artwork created from spinning circular paper on a turntable whilst holding a felt-tip pen down on the paper whilst it spins. This paper then gets sent to the manufacturers who sandwich it between the two transparent sides of the record (where all the grooves are). The length of the line corresponds to the amount of revolutions the paper makes (the pen will first touch the paper at the start of the song, and will be lifted off at the end).
We’re hoping for roughly 30 people with 30 turntables to turn up to the spin session at Stanley Picker Gallery in Kingston, anyone can drop in. We’ll be playing the single quite a few times so bring some tolerance. Every 10 times the song is played, we’ll be performing it live.
Contact details and info is available at: stanleypickergallery.org
