mo(nu)ment: first pressing 2006

The first pressing of four records were sent to recipients in England & Canada.
One of the records (002_1:4) was kept unsent and unplayed. This was subsequently used in the live recording of mo(nu)ment at the Arcola Theatre, London in 2008.
Of the three posted records, two were returned with the recipients recording and one is presumed lost. On their return each record was recorded again.
Click the above tabs for documentation and recordings of each record.

Participants include Patrick McGinley (London) and Matt Rogalsky (Canada).

My sincere thanks to all of those who have contributed and taken part in the mo(nu)ment project.

Matt doesn't have a turntable. He made his recording 'using a battery operated fan, and a paper cup with a pin glued in. The direction of spin is contrary to normal and at a much higher speed…so you’ll have to reverse and slow down my recording to hear anything like your original.' Matt Rogalsky
