REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE

Revolutions Per Minute is a two-record album of 21 original sound works by artists who exhibit at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, Inc. Each gallery artist was asked to record or provide a 3-5 minute segment for Jeff Gordon's Greene Street Recording Studio. No further directions were given, and the soundworks are an amazing mix.
The album was the idea of Jeff Gordon, a music writer-producer who has written songs for Joan Baez and is a partner in the Greene Street Recording Studio in SoHo. Wanting to “bridge the gap” between the visual and the aural, he approached the dealer Ronald Feldman with a proposal for a record with which visual artists could experiment with sound.
