Music by the Metre market stall

mmss01

On 24th June 2012 ran a market stall at SoundFjord’s Sound//Space project selling music by the metre, as an homage to Situationist Giuseppe Pinot-Gallizio’s industrial paintings, also sold by the metre.

Visitors could buy abstract music made by automated machines, by the metre on magnetic tape, and listen to some of the recordings played back through a reel-to-reel machine.

The video below shows the process and the stall itself.
