face b : single

falta esto

project and website archive of sound related images created in parallel to an exhibition presented at la maison rouge, an art center in paris. face b (b-side, in French), consisted of three sections: longplay, single, and remix.

single is a selection of extremely rare records and reproductions of covers that have, for the most part, been lost or disappeared from daniela franco’s collection: a soundtrack by juan garcía esquivel and ulises carrión, commented by his friend, artist martha hellion; an obscure collaboration between david bowie and william burroughs (reviewed by the wire magazine’s editor anne hilde neset); a very limited release by lou reed and laurie anderson (featuring poet anne carson and the couple’s dog, lolabelle)… and much more.

you can read the reviews on face b’s minisite.
