NEMO 009-1
year: 2002

project coordinator:Matt Davignon
mastering: Matt Davignon
artwork:Anders Östberg


Source and Product are actually one project. The premise was: For Source, everyone contributes 5 minutes of sounds. For Product, everyone contributes music using Source tracks as the only sound source.

These tracks weren´t really intended as standalone musical compositions in the way that the other collections were.

comment 27.04.2005: Matt Davignon
  Rafter took the "Source" idea very seriously. In one channel, he's progressing through the alphabet, attempting to make every sound used in the English language. (The intention was for other artists to be able to edit these sounds into words.) In the other channel, he created fairly basic sounds from anything in sight around his studio.
