If magic exists in the world, it is surely manifest when a needle hits the grooves of a record and sound forms in the air. How does this happen? Do people who make amplifiers know the answers or those who cut the records themselves?
This beautiful book attempts to make the intangible tangible. It does this by sitting down with those who devote their lives to making sound, by juxtaposing their words with macro close-ups of the record grooves and styli which may hold the answers, by lingering over the valves, amps, and circuitry that bring the magic to life.
A photo book of kinds, furnished with short interviews and meet ups. Tatsuya Ariyama wants to know how music is shaped. Maybe this book presents us with the first steps?
