Did you know? Ozzy Osbourne came a cropper when a catapult malfunctioned during his 1981 Diary Of A Madman tour. A catapult was supposed to throw meat into the audience but due to a fault when Ozzy put his foot on a lever, several pounds of offal hit the singer on the back of his head. (thanks to thisdayinmusic for this).

That’s it for this week, thanks as always for supporting us and to our customers, past, present and future.

Discogs Blog On The Record: King Tuff

Kyle Thomas – aka King Tuff – describes ‘The Other’ as “basically where songs come from, it’s the hidden world, it’s the mystery. It’s the invisible hand that guides you whenever you make something. It’s the thing I had to rediscover—the sort of voice I had to follow—to bring me back to making music again […]

Classic Album Sundays Classic Album Sundays Sydney and The Australian Museum present AIR ‘Music for Museum’

In AIR’s discography, Music for Museum is a bit of an enigma. Few are aware of its actual existence. As an official release, it only exists as 1000 limited copies worldwide, carefully crafted by The Vinyl Factory in London and little, if no promotion was made at the time.

It is the result of an initiative called Open Museum led by the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille, a museum of fine arts which hosts France’s largest collection outside of Paris. The idea was to give a wild card to a guest coming from a different discipline to bring a new light on the permanent collection that tends to be overlooked while temporary exhibitions receive most of the public attention.

For its first edition in 2014, AIR was approached to create a musical soundscape to complement the spaces of the museum and selected artworks ranging from Dirk Bouts’ 15th century paintings to the Chinese multimedia artist Yi Zhou.

The nine tracks that compose Music for Museum are the first soundtrack for a museum and AIR’s most ambient work to date. “We’ve tried to approach two types of music, one that draws on matter and another on emotions” said bandmember Nicolas Godin. The record itself is akin to an exhibition catalogue rather than an album.

When asked about the difference between a movie soundtrack and a soundtrack for a museum, Godin said:

“Actually, it’s like [Woody Allen’s] The Purple of Rose of Cairo in which you walk into the film, something that people don’t have the opportunity to do at the movies, so there’s another degree of experience. Paradoxically, it’s more intense.”

Music for Museum is a very site specific piece and was produced with the Palais des Beau-Arts’ acoustics in mind. The large atrium’s 7.5-second reverb was reproduced in the studio for the recording.

Now, Sydneysiders will have the unique opportunity to hear this rare work in full, on super high-end audio equipment, for an immersive listening experience in the Australian Museum’s iconic Westpac Long Gallery. Adding to the occasion, this special event takes place on International Museum Day.

Our partners Synergy Audio Visual have put together an audio system that will fill the gorgeous space with Air’s enchanting ambient sounds while you wander the gallery and take in 200 of the Museum’s treasures.

There are two separate 90-min sessions of MUSIC FOR MUSEUM, one at 6pm and one at 7:30pm. Tickets are $39 each (with lower concession and member rates), and are available to purchase via the Museum here.
