  • Concrete Cube - Temple
    USB Flash Drive

    USB concrete cube ("Temple", size: 31 cm x 31 cm x 31 cm, weight: 70 kg) containing the WAV files of Jelinek’s compilation (Faitiche8-11).
    The Temple concrete cube is contra-intuitive, defying the demands made of contemporary sound carriers. Decidedly not portable, it is in fact monumentally bound to location. The material manifestation of the audio files is strictly functional, containing neither additional information nor decoration. Only the front side is adorned with a protruding USB port that allows access to the data within. Data and carrier are connected permanently – readable and copyable, but not yet deletable. Information and medium are reconciled. The data contained herein is freely accessible to all. The only requirements are physical presence at the cube’s location and a computer with a USB port (USB 1 & 2 compatible) that can be inserted into the cube. It is planned for "Temple" to be set up at a series of public spaces. The first of these will be the Laura Mars Gallery in Berlin (November 16th-30th, 2013).

about

Faitiche is delighted to present Jan Jelinek's Music for Fragments / Music & Birds (faitiche08). This Mini-LP is the first of four vinyl compilations that bring together a highly diverse range of Jelinek's works - including commissioned pieces, live recordings, collaborations with other musicians, as well as unreleased material from the past five years.

Side A:
Music for Fragments developed from a collaboration with Canadian choreographer Sylvain Émard. Two excerpts of music composed for the dance piece Fragments – Volume 1 (2010) are presented in revised form on the A side.

Side B:
Music & Birds is a commissioned work for the CosmoCaixa science museum in Barcelona, Spain. Using various recordings of birdsong and two oscillators, Jelinek produced a number of rhythmical sketches. The tracks gathered here were recorded during the preparations for a live performance in 2011.

The series of compilations will culminate in the release of a vinyl collectors box and booklet. The digital release will be no less of a monumental gesture: a limited edition of USB concrete blocks will house the MP3 versions of Jelinek's compilations. It is planned to install the data storage devices – each measuring approximately .125 cubic Meters – to be freely accessible in music shops an other public spaces.
