Never Records 97 by Never Records Podcasts published on 2019-08-02T21:46:53Z Two weeks ago I sent a message 150 years into the future. I made a vinyl record time capsule, comprised 17 hand cut records containing tone pictures of our time from 2017-2019 encased in a wooden box made by my cousin Michael from a slab of Silver Maple.. I placed the box between aluminum studs in the yet to be built walls of the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s new Rudin Family Gallery, an exhibition space attached to the Harvey Theater in downtown Brooklyn. Upon completion of the gallery a plaque will be hung inside the lobby of the theater that reads, “This vinyl record time capsule, titled Persistent Echoes uses tone pictures to capture and frame a moment in our lives that we all share, whether knowingly or unknowingly. Through conscientiously selected and recorded sounds, with selected sounds from the artist’s life and the BAM Hamm archives, Riederer believes he can telegraph a crystallization of this moment to future generations. Placed in the Rudin Family Gallery’s wall, Persistent Echoes becomes a time capsule for a century and beyond. "
