53 beginnings (2012)
12" vinyl with screenprinted cover
1 + 2 a.p.
The record consists of 53 single tracks, arranged onto both sides (side a: 26; side b: 27). The tracks, recorded from a random selection of records consist of the touchdown of the needle and the period of sounds audible before the first actual tone.
The repeated touchdown of the needle and the peculiar sounds before the actual first tone - that can be anticipated but is never heard - re-enact the „not-yet“ as an immanent condition.
