Like a photograph, it details the many layers of conditions, memories, visions and stories coming together at a specific time and place. The nuances of each recording are captured and shared as raw as possible, without cuts and other post production tools. I package each recording by hand. The disc of the first edition (Johann Sebastian Bach, Partita No.2) sits on a plate of wood crafted from the maple used to make violins. Each box includes a polaroid photo which I took on the day of recording. My intention is to create 50 such releases of 50. These will probably span my lifetime, thus functioning as a documentation of my existence within the relationships and societies I inhabit. By structuring Project 50 in this simple format I seek to encourage an abundance of possibilities as to how it will unfold.
