Popular music is the cultural generator of the 20th century. At its heart has always been the vinyl record, that object of near fetishistic desire and a stimulus for wild debate. We pursued our records insatiably, hunting them down to obscure cramped shops teeming with like-minded souls, rushing them home to our quiet little rooms. We carefully slipped them out of their thin, white sleeves and played them from start to finish, side after side, flipping them over lovingly, longingly, again and again. We loaned them out reluctantly, borrowed them greedily, pored over the sleeve-notes and artwork in moments of peace. We cherished them without shame, coveted them without guilt, adored them with a passion. We viewed them in equal measure as whispers in a confession box, screams in a field, and letters to a lover. VINYL (Dublin) is our salute to all such things, an immersive theatre of the mind comprising musicians, producers, designers and filmmakers specially convened to celebrate the rich history and enduring legacy of vinyl, its landmark recordings and key personnel, the groundbreaking labels and studios that fostered such talent, with contributions and insights from some of its most perceptive champions. This three-day event, to be […]
