What could be described as just a sequel or a simple follow-up to last year's collaboration project, MEH MOGYA/SAMPLE OF ME with The Showroom, Larry Achiampong's SAMPLE OF US delves even deeper into the art of audio sampling by investigating the relationship of the so-called dying format, vinyl, and it's importance or lack thereof to the younger generation.
In collaboration with The Serpentine's Edgware Road Project and a group of students from Westminster Academy, Achiampong devised and delivered a series of sessions in which the students were approached with roundtable discussions, posing questions such as; what kind of music do you like/don't like? What memories do you associate with the music you listen to? Have you ever played a record, and if so what does vinyl mean to you?
The conclusion of the project culminates a record containing the collaborative efforts of both the artist and that of the students, Achiampong describes this as 'various personalities that were cut, pasted and fused in the collaboration record'.
