“Feed the Birds” Experimental 7″ Lathe Cut Record

QCS_110 Michael Ridge & Jeroen Diepenmaat “Feed the Birds” s/sided lathe cut record 33⅓ RPM (edition of 9)

Feed the Birds is a collaboration between myself and the wonderful Jeroen Diepenmaat: 7” clear single sided lathe cut record meticulously covered with mixed bird seed. Allowing birds to literally feed off the record will expose the playing surface: an experimental field recording awaits the listener….

Each lathe cut is packaged in white 7” reel-to-reel tape box with B&W artwork mounted on the lid. An additional paper insert is included with the record.
