Fine Art

Kristen Dye

Crossing bridges between music and art, this work looks at a rare feature of vinyl records; phrases scratched into their run off grooves. These etchings are often “inside jokes” of the bands, but out with the band, the phrases take on a new life. I intend on documenting some phrases from my record collection and remove them from the record and bring them front and centre. With self-penned text, image and sound played on a DIY analogue record player, I aim to reinvent them and remove them from the context of their musical stylings, yet simultaneously pay homage to their rich place of origin.
