Here's a wonderfully weird link: 

http://www.dustandgrooves.com/.....te-albums/

 

It's an art exhibition featuring nothing but original numbered White Albums.  

It's rounded out with an audio file of a hundred copies of side one of the White Album, played at once.  It goes in and out of sync, creating a hypnotic reverberation.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Just think if they play Revolution #9 all at once. That would be creepy.

Fascinating. (Parlance put that up in the Beatle News thread I think.) The guy actually has 700 White Albums - and looking to buy more. I didn't know about the music part.

It's in New York, so if I have a moment I'll check it out.

That's the eventual idea. The guy is slowly going through recording every one of the 700+ copies he has, and then layering them one of top of the other - with all their years of wear and tear. Just such a weird and fascinating idea.

At first I thought he was crazy, but I didn't know all White Albums looked different. I thought he just collected the albums being..well..white. It's interesting to see what people have done to the covers and to see how they have aged.

Right now I'm listening to the little fragment. I thought it would sound as if it was double tracked a hundred times. Wrong again. You can hear which albums are faster. Like, right now Dear Prudence is on and it just goes like ''Dear Prudence Prudence Dear Prudence''. It's kind of annoying. Oh, now it has gone to Glass Union, which sounds as if they're all out of sync and it's more annoying than special or cool or whatever. It's a bit creepy.

From an artistic point of view, I think this is really cool. And the layered White Albums sound spooky but kind of neat. The guy seems like a real oddball.

Didn't notice this item until now - This is fantastic, what a nutty concept! Can't imagine why the simultaneous recordings would go out of sync, unless the pressings from different plants have different characteristics. Or maybe he was using different turntables? Whatever... Nice article, too, with the pictures and the comments. I had to laugh at the art professor who gets all outraged - "This! Is! Not! Art!"

Me, I've got 5 copies of my favourite album (MX-80 Sound's Hard Attack), all with slight variations in country of origin/label/catalogue number/cover art and I plan to buy at least another one or two someday!

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
