☼ Scanner - Double Fold [July 2009 re-post]

Released on the Slovenian record label rx:tx, "Double Fold" is apparently inspired by Nicholson Baker’s excellent book by that name, which was an alarming study of how libraries have forsaken their duty as custodians of our literary heritage, focusing in particular on the failures of microfilm to do justice to print newspapers. Scanner (aka. Robin Rimbaud) writes of the project, “Fold is one extended elastic track focusing on a pulse, 128 beats per minute. The book is an exploration of the dismantling of the greatest archives of our recorded heritage, paper as a resource now too fragile to store our history on.” He explains that he built the album as a collage of hundreds of fragments from his domestic tape archive, circa 1980-2002.
