The White Albums →

Rutherford Chang recorded 100 vinyl copies of The Beatles’ self-titled white album and layered them on top of one another.  The results are great — just listen to how haunting the opening of “Dear Prudence” has become, for example.

We Buy White Albums →

Over at Dust & Grooves, Eilon Paz interviews Rutherford Chang about his exhibition “We Buy White Albums”:

My collection of White Albums is on display at Recess, a storefront art space in SoHo. It’s set up like a record store with the albums arranged in bins by serial number, and visitors are invited to browse and listen to the records. Except, rather than sell the albums, I am buying more. I currently have 693 copies.

I geeked out while reading this, as I’ve long admired these editions from afar.  What a great idea.  If I was in New York, I am sure I could spend hours looking at all of these.
