mo(nu)ment | second pressing | 002b_ssv7_1-6

In 2007 a second pressing of mo(nu)ment was made consisting of an edition of six records, numbered 002b_1:1 to 002b_6:6.
All six records were sent through the post without the protection of cover or envelope. Each record was labeled with a return address and instructions for the recipient to 'play, record, and return' the record.
Participants include: Lawrence English (Australia); Guy Sherwin (London); The Quiet American (USA); David Luff (France); Lasse-marc Riek (Germany).
All but two of the records have so far been returned.

Click the above tabs for documentation and recordings of each record.

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

So I made the recordings - attached here as a link for you. Will send the record back shortly...'
