Organic Grids & Linear Fluids is a 12″ vinyl record with tracks by S&W and Gustaaf. The electronic music was recorded as part of an installation of the same title. It was released by Turnland in a limited edition of 100 copies.
Graphic designer Christian Nicolaus has developed a sound/graphic contraption that uses a projected grid in an half-open cube. This installation becomes a classic step-sequencer to trigger and create simultaneous sounds and graphics. A modular grid is played and individually composed by tracked surfaces that are placed in the sound/graphic grid. Completely different sound and graphic combinations are created, which result in a composition created interactively by the viewer.
The design of the record is also based on the grid used in the installation. Through folding the cover, eight different modular combinations are possible. The record comes with a full booklet describing the process of the installation.
The font in use is a custom cut of Lausanne (old version).
