Lo Recordings LCD11 Root


Thurston Moore

In May 1997 Lo Recordings received a DAT tape containing 30 different one-minute guitar pieces by Thurston Moore. Each piece was copied onto individual tapes and packaged in custom designed vacuum cleaner bags. One hundred bags were sent out to a selection of visual artists and musicians, inviting them to create a brand new work utilising the original piece as a starting point. The CD contained 25 musical contributions; the 5LP limited edition box set contained 38 tracks.
