Giuseppe Pinot-Gallizio was a founding member of the Situationist International and inventor of Industrial Painting.
These artworks were created by machines, which automatically made abstract expressionist paintings on long rolls of canvas, to be cut up and sold by the metre. Graham Dunning’s ongoing Music by the Metre project is a homage to Pinot-Gallizio.
Dunning creates abstract music machines from found tape loops, dusty 78s, live environmental sound, endlessly repeating dubplates of field recordings, and analogue synthesizer drone. These
contraptions are then used to fill whole spools of tape resulting in dense, textured soundfields with complex polyrhythms,
at once static and everchanging.
Graham Dunning is an experimental
artist who works primarily with sound
and found objects. His work is concerned with time, noise, and memory. This
album comprises four 350m edits from Dunning’s ever growing archive of audio spools.
