"Groove Script takes its title from an article written by Moholy-Nagy in 1923 entitled New Form In Music: Potentialities Of The Phonograph. In the article he posits the idea of a »groove script alphabet«… that the phonograph be transformed from an instrument of reproduction into one of production; this will cause the sound phenomenon itself to be created on the record, which carried no prior acoustic message, by the incision of groove-script lines as required.’
The publication takes on this notion of potentiality to explore the »groove-script« and the processes which might enliven and radicalize ideas and possibilities of the ‘independent’ artist. Images are a collection of found photographs once belonging to an amateur photography enthusiast, hand developed in a dark-room. The photocopier, light from a super-eight projector, slide cases and string get the job of bringing the groove-script to life – one of continual improvisation, remembering and re-enlivening past changes to de-stabilise the present.
