William Bennett Lecture Available To Stream

Whitehouse co-founder William Bennett’s MACBA (Museum Of Contemporary Art Barcelona) lecture on record collecting is available to listen here. MACBA has also produced an email interview with Bennett available here. Bennett talks about the experience of listening to recorded music for the first time, after spending his adolescence in a home without any means of listening to or playing recorded music, and discusses the polar extremes of his collection, from Haitian and Ghanian music to Italo disco rarities.
