PLASTIC CARDBOARD ELECTRIC &
What does this show mean to me?
It’s the debut of my ELECTRIC &
to all of the usual audio and visual mediums
that we have known until now.
The end of an era.
A sense of the speed of the flow of time.
A catharsis of the inevitable.
A triumph of transformation
I’ve been thinking about an album like this for
Sometimes this idea seemed crazy.
While making this vinyl record,
I was persecuted by “ecology”.
I used the cardboard from old, discarded vinyl
inside sleeves and plastic covers,
recycling them, changing their original
I “converted” the old into new, giving them life
Sort of a recincarnation.
When something is inevitably destroyed.
Survivors change and change all that is around
