S0LEX - AH0Y! THE S0UNDM4P OF THE NETH3RL4NDS (2013)
The artist took a boat through all 12 provinces of Holland recording local musicians. As a constraint, the musicians played to a loop they could hear through headphones, but could not hear what the others were playing. Solex then edited and reassembled the recordings into this soundmap. The results are a folksy cut-up sample collage, a kind of shuffle-beat techno-blues.
