TAKE A CHANCE ON ME
by Sylvain van iniitu
Take A Chance On Me :
is an evanescent label and experience
i am running this as an exploration of atonment towards the postal system
and simultaneously as an exploration of what it really does, in terms of playing with hazard and dealing with materiality
a patient at the hospital told me recently that there was no hazard, only synchronicities, well let's find out
so here is the deal :
- i produce a single record with unreleased tracks, mostly algorithmic and stochastic music, to further the play on randomness. I may also ask friends or other artists to furnish unreleased tracks.
- this record is sent in a way that its cover is also the post packaging : any damage, mark, sticker to the packaging is also a welcome modification of the record itself
- the recipient is finishing the process by sending pictures of the arrived record, as it is. If the record never arrives, the recipient will produce the documentation of requests done to the post to locate it.
in doing so, the artist, the object, the post, and the recipient are uniquely bound in one experience. that forms the whole process

if you want to buy one of those records and be part of one experience, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org - participation fee is 10€, by paypal
