Notation for Typewriter, 2013
7 inc vinyl, engravings, 18 x 18 cm


View of the exhibition 43º Novíssimos, Galeria Ibeu, Rio de Janeiro, 2013


Five drawings engraved using a Hall Braille Typewriter machine from 1891. The rhythmic patterns generated from the mechanical manipulation of its 6 keys were recorded into 7” vinyls. Each record contains the sound of the printing process of its cover.

As a chicken-egg-reading-writing question, the drawings become notations for the sound patterns, at the same time the sound recordings can also exist as scripts for the drawing's reproduction.
