project bootleg, an initiative by musician daniel freitag and manuel & max creative studio presents a new form of live recording. the creative team tapes blank vinyl records to the floor at various music concerts like die antwoord, gold panda, the roots, apparat and deadmau5. the thrashing and abuse from the audience throughout each show creates unique scratched and weathered grooves on its surface, which generate original sound bytes. audio is then mixed on a record player in a studio, where the damage from the live shows manifests as distorted instrumental compositions when combined with other existing tracks.
