Keith Rocka Knittel - THRUST/EVERYTHING MUST GO #3




A heartbeat or an eternity
they're both the same.

THRUST / EVERYTHING MUST GO #3 is one of a series of performances in which Keith Rocka Knittel explores the objectivity of his record collection by getting rid of it.  In each performance a record is chosen from years of vinyl amassed while djing professionally and used as a starting point for a presentation on a theme connected to that particular record. 

THRUST / EVERYTHING MUST GO #3 employs Herbie Hancock's album "Thrust" to initiate a composition of contextually related records telling a new narrative of the creation of the universe.  Images borrowed from the album covers are manipulated on micro and macro scales while a soundtrack made from elements of songs on the records recontextualizes their original sound and meaning. Through the process, reflecting our own understanding of the universe itself, time and space are rendered as an immeasurable unknown.

An accompanying pamphlet, THRUST / EVERYTHING MUST GO (Field Guide), will be available to read along with the presentation and serve as a re-telling of the story after the performance is complete.  A fifteen song soundtrack will also be released digitally the day of the performance for free download.

At performance end, the records used become relics of the event and are available to the public.  Viewers who wish to own a record can negotiate with the artist directly at any time after the presentation.  All records come in a protective sleeve with a print, attaching a provenance to each object.
