A Play in Two Parts for Needle and Record
Side 1: Ship, at Sea
Side 2: Lifejacket, Sewn to the Back of the Sea
Opposite is one of two labels for my single edition 12″ vinyl record, one of a growing archive of one-off artists’ dub plates commissioned by artist Mat Jenner as part of FOAM, a peripatetic project that continues to tour the UK with new dub plate contributions added periodically. In keeping with the aims of the project, the audio itself isn’t available to listen to online — you have to watch the play of the needle and the record in person while you hear the sound they make.
