Raster Noton: The Shop

The Chemnitz-based electronic music and design label opens a temporary record shop installation in NYC...

Taking the form of a record shop, electronic music and design label Raster Noton have produced an installation which will present an archive of their publications, music albums, and other work over the past 10 years of their operations for the public to peruse (though not to buy). Installed in the e-flux art network exhibition space, The Shop will be lit up with White Line Light, an installation designed by Carsten Nicolai and Olaf Bender made of handmade, neon gas-filled tubes that react to Raster Noton compositions being played in the space. The opening will feature a performance by Nicolai (Alva Noto) and Bender (Byetone) 26 May 7-9PM, NYC e-flux, 41 Essex Street, lower level. The Shop will be open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 12-6PM until late July. Tel: +1 212 619 3356 or click upon here for more information.
