Friday, May 15th in Chicago Illinois, Turntabling’s Joe Wallace curates Remix, an art show featuring album cover collages by Jessica Barnett DeCuir, who comes to StudioLab to show her work all the way from San Antonio, Texas. (Some readers will remember that StudioLab hosted the Turntabling album cover show in 2014, Sexy and Scary Vinyl)
DeCuir’s work for the show involves album covers from the 70s and 80s. “I limited myself to these two decades because the albums are easy to come by and are the nostalgic, often cheesy soundtrack of my years growing up and listening to radio, records and tapes. Many of the original album covers contained subliminal content, later to be revealed through my 2×2” square cutting process.”
If it hadn’t been for an accidental discovery, Remix might not have happened. DeCuir says,”The series began when I found a small fragment cut from a record cover in the garbage,” she says, “When I showed it to my husband, a fellow musician, band-mate, and vinyl junkie, he was instantly able to identify the album it came from, while to me it was an interesting abstract image. Surrounded by a couple of thousand records in our home music studio, it was not difficult to get inspiration for the project that began in 2006 and has continued off-and-on through 2015.”
This show features some famous–and infamous–album covers. What has been done to them must be seen to be believed. It’s one thing to view a single image from the show like the one above, titled Crimson Collins, it’s quite another to see a large number of these works grouped together. Then you really get the full impact of the work and the show overall.
Remix has an opening reception at StudioLab on Friday May 15, from 6 to 10PM on the 5th Floor of the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago, and the show runs until mid-June. You can learn more about the opening night via our Facebook event page for Remix.

Every once in a while it seems like a good idea to talk about why vinyl records are awesome, why it’s a good thing to collect vinyl and what it means to live the vinyl lifestyle. Not everybody who buys records is into “living the vinyl lifestyle” but for me personally, this is something I’ve... Read More »

I got an awesome e-mail today asking about the soundtrack for the film Forbidden Photos of A Woman Above Suspicion, AKA Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene. Specifically, the question was, what can you recommend that is similar the Bossa Nova sounds of this film. That e-mail made my day, and I decided... Read More »
In case you haven’t noticed from all the giallo soundtracks Turntabling has for sale by Goblin, Morricone, Riz Ortolani, and many more, I am obsessed with giallo films, and Italian cinema in general. (Yes Eurocine is basically an obsession, but there’s something about those Italians…) Here is a fun little helping of giallo trailers–watching these... Read More »

1979 saw Goblin working on the soundtrack for this Italian film starring Jaqueline Bisset and Terence Stamp. Believe it or not, the title track was informed more by Burt Bacharach than prog, but the old classic proggy Goblin sound does rear its head on parts of this soundtrack. Have a listen to this rare, unusual-for-Goblin... Read More »
The soundtrack to Joe D’Amato’s Buio Omega is a pretty awesome proggy bass-n-synth fest that really doesn’t let you in on what you’re going to see when this Italian slash-splat masterpiece gets going. It’s got everything a transgressive Italian horror movie should have–a bit of wanton slicing, some embalming, some necrophilia…and then there’s the score... Read More »
