Rustic Airs
Sybella Perry

2020 / EN / Risograph / 24×17,5 cm / 60pp. / 100 copies

This dual publication by artist Sybella Perry consists of an artist's
book and an LP, out by Hideous Replica. It uses the example of folk
airs – interchangeable tunes that traveled and were adapted – in
search for a way of thinking that addresses mobility, transformation
and plurality. Rustic Airs combines generative electroacoustic
composition with instrumental recordings of folk music, as a vinyl
record, and critical writing with transcript and travelogue, as a
limited edition book. Change occurs in the gaps between notes and
counts, between people, between spaces and places, words,
sounds, and topical fields.
