Touch Radio 77 | Achim Mohne and Philip Jeck

22.04.12 – VINYL+, Live at ZKM, Karlsruhe 21st April 2012 – 63:16 – 192 kbps


Achim Mohné [00:00 to 29:11] uses three Omnitronic decks, Philip Jeck [26:51 to 63:16] uses two Dancettes and sampler. Recorded by Philip Marshall from desk to hard drive.
The resurgence of vinyl in recent years is a phenomenon which has not gone unnoticed; as CD declines sharply, its audio limitations exposed not only by advances in other technologies, but also by the myths propagated at the inception of digital exposed, so artists explore and demand other formats to express their work. Although a business model is still some way off the traditional artist » label » distribution » shop paradigm, it is clear this is being radically overhauled and replaced by online sales platforms set up by the artists themselves. But vinyl seems to have escaped this process, and continues to grow. Why is that?

The T-B A21 Sound Space is a project commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary to bring to a larger audience the unique series of compositions that were produced for The Morning Line.
