The 45 year-old albums, with scratches and physical imperfections accumulated with age, all play slightly differently, causing the 100 layers to gradually drift out of sync over the course of each side. The gatefold cover and disc labels are composites of the weathered and graffitied originals. Also included is a 24 x 24 inch poster insert featuring images of the individual covers. This album was made from an ongoing collection of over 1,500 numbered pressings of The White Album

Liverpool, Art & Culture. Officially titled The Beatles, the White Album was a game changer on release in 1968, selling in massive numbers. The event sees the vinyl collection set up like a record shop (stocking only the one record), and visitors are invited to come in and browse through the copies and listen to whichever one takes their fancy

The sleeve, designed by Pop artist Richard Hamilton, is famously blank but every one of these copies was faded, stained, torn, illustrated, signed or otherwise altered in some unique way, whether by a human hand or simply by the passing of time. There’s something about The White Album that invites listeners to mess around with it. Joan Didion stole its title for her 1979 essay collection, an elegy for the dreams of 1960s California. The producer Danger Mouse chopped it to pieces and recombined the fragments with vocals from Jay-Z’s The Black Album to create his 2004 mash-up The Grey Album.

As Chang told the New York Times in February of this year: Being an all-white cover, the changes are apparent. The serial numbers made collecting them seem natural, and the more I got, the more interesting it became. As you see, many of them are written on, and each has a story.

On a rainy afternoon recently Rutherford Chang sat at a desk near the window of the Recess Gallery in SoHo, listening to The Beatles - the two-disc set, released in 1968, and commonly known as The White Album, and showing a visitor a computer printout listing of several hundred copies of the album he owns.

The greatest artisti and a a great performer. Nice and wonderful idea. You are a graet artist Mate!! I am a Beatles fan since autumn 1963!!! LikeLike.

Session invites artists to use the space for projects that embrace experimentation, focusing on process. Chang's vision is, once again, mathematically based. He has collected roughly 700 copies of the Beatles' iconic ninth studio album, The White Album, originally released in November 1968. These are organized by serial number and are methodically being played on a turntable each day in the shop, while at the same time being recorded onto a track

Notes

Limited edition of 800.

Created by layering 100 unique copies of The Beatles' White Album, this 96 minute double-LP captures how every copy of the iconic album has been distinctly shaped by its history, both visually and sonically. The 45 year-old albums, with scratches and physical imperfections accumulated with age, all play slightly differently, causing the 100 layers to gradually drift out of sync over the course of each side.

The gatefold cover and disc labels are composites of the weathered and graffitied originals. Also included is a 24 x 24 inch poster insert featuring images of the individual covers.

This album was made from an ongoing collection of over 1,500 numbered pressings of The White Album.

Labels are from multiple copies of the White Album labels overlayed with text blacked out. They are used randomly over the four sides. To tell which side is which, look for:
Side 1: "MAGNANT"
Side 2: "Holly" "Record 2"
Side 3: "MAGNANT" "CN"
Side 4: "Holly" "Record 1"

Alrighty then, here it is 2018. Fifty years after it's initial release the venerable Beatles White Album can now be obtained in original stereo, original mono, remastered stereo, remastered mono, remixed stereo, remixed mono, and even as a remix of the original Esher demoes including songs that didn't make the final album. Far off to the side you find this, Rutherford Chang's art project of 100 layered dubs of the original album started in sync that then go out of phase over the course of each side, An interesting and apparently divisive piece.The first side of which can be heard on this DustAndGrooves Rutherford Chang page, http://dustandgrooves.com/rutherford-chang-we-buy-white-albums/Mr Chang's sound-art version pressing has had all the identifiable text of its source album crossed out, torn away or blotted out. And the music itself, while obviously sourced from the Beatles white album, is a separate beast.Side 1. Rutherford has turned up the crackle of 100 entry grooves. Back in the USSR gets off to a synced start and hangs together pretty well by the plane taking off at its ending, Dear Prudence becomes a little more trance-like. By it's end things are definitely getting surreal. The less charitably coined 'Granny music' that John would call Paul's Ob-la-di Ob-la-da (until John came in one day with a mocking over the top piano part that Paul realized actually worked perfectly-per a Giles Martin NPR interview I just heard today), gets echoey and strange when layered 100 times, Lennon's Happiness Is A Warm Gun and Harrison's While My Guitar.. get harrowing. Honey Pie a complete mess.Why do this? Why listen to it? The comments section in the DustAndGrooves link above tear the concept apart, calling it a vacuous conceptual one-liner, basically throw it on the ground and stamp on it. But those who get something out of it say things like this guy:"Listening to your Side 1 X 100 has evoked something I was not prepared for: profound sadness at the fading of individual experience and joy into the cacophony of the years, and the knowledge that even the masterful creations of The Beatles will continue to fade into the background noise as the decades continue to pass. However, this is leavened a bit by an awareness that each of those album pressings represents the joy or bliss of at least one individual listener, and they have all been multiplied over and over and over… and that isn’t it wonderful that this is what life, and the world, is made of – so many individual moments of joy and bliss! My own White Album bliss is copy #0723697."So there's that.

Of course now someone has to do this with a couple of hundred 4XLP reissue box thingies :)

Really amazing piece of work. John Lennon would have LOVED this.

Probably the coolest album I own. It slowly goes from a nice echo sound to something truly frightening. It's hard to listen to, but the package is great and I just like the whole experimental quality of it.
