#15. - 104. Vinyl Skull
There are two reasons I like this piece.
1) I have fond childhood memories of listening to records with my parents and dancing around the living room with them. One day many years later, I found a Cyndi Lauper record at a thrift store, which was the 1st single that my parents bought me as a kid. I knew it then that I needed a record player, so my parents bought me a record player for my birthday. I've enjoyed many hours of listening and dancing to my now large record collection. Recently, I inherited my grandmother's record player cabinet. We used to listen to swing and big band on it. You can see now, that records have a special place in my heart
2) I know as an art medium, vinyl records can be temperamental to work with. I commend Noah for being able to cut through this record without warping it. The curves of the skull are evocative with the curves of the concentrate circles of a record. This makes me want to play my records
