Each photograph was made by creating a frequency on a home made spectrograph representing one of the 12 notes in music. The images were archivally printed on kozo paper. Hand made strechers were built to hold the dibond which was primed and covered in gold leaf. The image was laid down over the gold and flooded with resin. Once dry, the piece is wet sanded to remove all reflections then a second pass of resin and polish was hand applied to specific parts of the piece.

Everything you see is sound. Everything you hear is photography. All the Other Stars is the surreal narrative resonating in between. This unique approach to an artist's exhibition catalog is also a stand alone piece of the exhibition. This album contains all 12 musical notes found using infinite frequencies.

 

A tone generator was used to visualize the images. The photographs were converted back into audio using the image’s grayscale plus the X and Y coordinates. The 12 audio tracks were then mixed to create an ambient soundscape. The images can be re-visualized with the use of a spectrometer.

 

The second song is a Southern Gothic styled duet by L+V accompanied by a 12 frame animation when viewed with the praxinoscope mirror included in the album. The imagery on both sides of the vinyl is mastered directly into the lacquer from sound files. The files were translated from a photograph and carved into the wax using the same tools used to inscribe the grooves of a song.
