X-Ray Records

meagre resource / mere026  8″ Lathe-cut flexi (2014)

An edition of 20 unique lathe-cut X-ray records inspired by Russian “roentgenizdat” records from the 1950’s (home made bootlegs of banned Western pop music pressed onto discarded X-rays) – these playable 8” records each feature a different X-ray image and a composed sound work made from recordings taken in Forth Valley Royal’s radiology department including sounds of X-ray machines, CAT scans and the MRI scanner.

The X-ray records were exhibited on medical light boxes as part of a launch event for the ‘Sounds of the Modern Hospital’ LP at Forth Valley Hospital, Larbert and the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow in March 2014.

This project was supported by Creative Scotland and NHS Forth Valley.
