Play It Again Use It Together
15 - 24 November 2018
On 14th September I went to see my friends and artists that I've frequenty collaborated with Eileen Simpson and Ben White’s latest Open Music Archive project. Play It Again Use It Together takes as its starting point the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Popular Music (IPM) archive of over 80,000 records, and typical of public resources, much of the material has been gifted over a number of years by collectors and enthusiasts.
With a particular focus on copyright-expired records from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, Ben and Eileen have temporarily exhibited the IPM archive in one of the galleries at the Victoria Gallery & Museum, making it visible and accessible for the first time.
