Tom Moody on Joseph Masheck on Josef Albers' Record Covers at Minus Space

- bill 1-26-2010 2:06 pm

to elaborate on moodys point: minus space fails to point out that regardless of the deserving museum quality presentation of albers graphic package design, he was functioning as a hired gun (hired by light for his self released projects) to put a highbrow face on elevator music schlock. light blended hammed up stereo effects, symphonic hi-fidelity and faux beat-nick bongo sensibilities for the wanna-be audiophile market of the day. a questionable direction now appreciated in the mostly ironic terms of the current retro "lounge-music" listening genre. not those of a violin master as stated. no properly contextualizing mention of that cultural value disconnect in product and package.
