Infinity

Infinity (2010-ongoing) is an everchanging music and sound work that challenges the notion that a musical work is ever ‘finished’.

In the first era of recorded music (1950s – recently), a final version of music was captured (usually as a ‘single’ or ‘album’) which was then repeatedly copied onto a permanent physical medium such as vinyl or CD.

With a few exceptions, the new digital music industry has so far largely stuck to the traditional model of music production, in the form of streaming albums, EPs and singles.

The digital age has the potential to disrupt this approach. There is no physical product and therefore no setup and reproduction cost, digital recording tools are much cheaper and easier to learn, and over the past decade digital distribution has revolutionised the music industry.

Infinity seeks to explore and challenge this approach to making and presenting music.

Current version

There is currently no publicly-available version of Infinity.

No record is kept of previous versions of Infinity.

Cycling music…

My two passions are cycling and music, and over the years I’ve noticed a lot of crossover between them, but not many people writing/ collecting/ making a thing of it. So I’ve decided to make a thing of it.

A while back I did a mix of ‘cycling music’ which is as good a place as any to start.

1 Tour de France – Kraftwerk
2 Galibier – MJ Cole
3 Ventoux – Kamera
4 Tour de France – Telex
5 My White Bicycle – Tomorrow
6 Bicycle – Memory Tapes
7 Happy Cycling – Boards Of Canada
8 Bike – Pink Floyd
9 Bike(Sid Sings Syd) – Fortran 5
10 Beatles v Kraftwerk – Soulwax
11 Ventoux – Tim Hecker
12 Extremadura – Greg Merckx
13 Bicycle Riders (Harps of the Ancient Temples) – Vangelis

If there’s anything cycling music-related you think I should include, get in touch with me on Twitter or Instagram. Anything at all, no matter how obscure or obvious (but probably not ‘I Want To Ride My Bicycle’ by Queen – that’s a bit too obvious).
