The long, dark corridors in the basement of the Odense Public Library, is home to Northern Europe’s largest LP collection -
This title was gained almost inadvertently: As other libraries in Denmark removed LP’s to make space for the rising interest in crime novels in the 1980s, Odense held onto their collection.
I have been commissioned and given free reign over the collection to highlight and present it in new perspectives, for new generations, for new possibilities…
This public archive features pop, rock, electronica, classical, opera, ballet, rnb, soul, new age, and the most fascinating selection of avant garde music from the early electronic era.
For this show I've selected some of my highlights from Odense, and as usual, you will hear the pieces in real-time, as well as with my turntable manipulations which take the pics into new transfigured states.
I’d like to say a massive thank you to the library for commissioning and hosting me, and to Mads Behrendt who guided me through the vast collection.
