Notes

From the liner notes:
"The basic sound source for this CD is the copper engraving "The Sudarium of St Veronica", cut by the French artist Claude Mellan (1598-1688) in Paris 1949. A portrait of Christ engraved through a continuous spiral line that starts at the tip of his nose. An old heliogravure (a 19th Century reproduction of one of the original prints) was used to make a photo etching in copper to get a replica as close as possible to the original plate. This plate was played back with a specially constructed record player and recorded at Firework Edition, Stockholm, July 17, 2007.
These recordings are totally fresh and not manipulated in any way. See this CD as a presentation and a report of the first three recordings ever done of this 358 year old engraving."

Produced in collaboration with Galleri Niklas Belenius
