ETP005 – 7” Single 2008

7” vinyl pressing, double sided, edition of 250, 2008

Cut and pressed by GZ Vinyl, Czech Republic.

Audio Work – Henning Lundkvist

Artwork – Padraig Timoney

In this audio work, Lundkvist connotes Händel's famous composition "Israel in Egypt" (composed 1739 and, with its recording in 1888, being the first ever recorded piece of music) with the 1739 Stono Rebellion (one of the first slave uprisings in North America) and the 1888 Match Stick girls strike. A humble attempt to intertwine different layers from the fabric of history through one of the simplest means available – superimposing.
