Relay is an online music project devised and curated by Irish musician John Lambert aka Chequerboard. The aim in the project is to create an unbroken chain of sound pieces where each work is created in response to the previous so that ideas and sounds shift, mutate and evolve over time.

The only requirements given to each specifically chosen artist is that they create a sound piece in response to the last in the chain and write a short piece on their process, both of which are posted on the Relay website for visitors to explore. 

On finishing their work, each artist is asked to gather a cluster of sounds from their piece which are passed on to the next participant, as a result some tracks feature traces of audio from the previous piece but not always, some responses are purely conceptual.

Participants so far have included musicians, sound artists and multi-disciplinary artists who intermittently work with sound. 

My latest design work for the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University has gone live.

The Record: Contemporary ART and VINYL

The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University presents a groundbreaking exhibition that explores the culture of vinyl records through 50 years of contemporary art.

The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl features work by 41 artists from around the world, from the 1960s to the present, who use vinyl records as subject or medium. The exhibition includes sound work, sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, photography, video and performance.

The Record includes rising stars in the contemporary art world (William Cordova, Robin Rhode, Dario Robleto), outsider artists (Mingering Mike), well-established artists (Jasper Johns, Ed Ruscha, Carrie Mae Weems) and artists whose work will be shown in a U.S. museum for the first time (Kevin Ei-ichi deForest, Jeroen Diepenmaat, Taiyo Kimura, Lyota Yagi).

Please check it out if you have a minute and thanks for looking!


Dope on Plastic

Great piece. I am actually developing the mini-site to go with this Exhibition (The Record: Contemporary ART and VINYL). We hope to be live by next week.
