Notes

Andrew Pekler selected 300 different covers from second-hand records and, using colorful geometric elements to cover over all titles, performer’s names, and label logos, removed traces of the covers’ original contexts. The sunsets, couples in silhouette, alpine panoramas, roses on pianos, female faces in close-up, and seascapes no longer serve as the packaging for easy listening and exotica. Instead, the romantic, bizarre and intriguingly bland images of the original covers are free to lend their evocative powers to the record of new music they now house. Likewise, the principle of collage is audible in Andrew Pekler’s compositions. Here, the electronically transformed fragments of audio extracted from the original records take on a new existence as Cover Versions. Edition of 300 Lps in individual covers, of which only 100 are available from Senufo Editions. Black vinyl (cut at SST). Full color insert.
