"Blume present a reissue of Bruce Naumans Soundtrack From First Violin Film, originally released in 1969. Since the mid-1960s, Nauman has laid the groundwork -- in thought, context, practice, and materiality -- for nearly every fine-artist that has followed in his wake. Even those who do not directly draw on the ground he gained, must contended with a world in his image. Initially issued by Tanglewood Press in 1969 -- a component of the art multiples edition 7 Objects/69 (also including David Bradshaw, Eva Hesse, Stephen Kaltenbach, Alan Saret, Richard Serra, and Keith Sonnier) -- Soundtrack From First Violin Film is a crucial element in Naumans diverse the canon of contributions; It bridges the emerging practices of performance, video, and sound. Blumes release -- along with the Die Schachtels 2016 reissue (DSART 013LP) -- marks the first time this seminal work has been available to a broader audience, making it a historic event. Soundtrack From First Violin Film, while resembling music, is one of the earliest gestures of sound art as it has come to be understood. It falls within Naumans larger body of solitary actions and performances. In 1968, the artist moved briefly to New York, occupying Jasper Johnss then vacant studio in the Hamptons, beginning to build the body of work for his first solo show at Leo Castelli Gallery, documenting them in what became the very first works of video art. Within the larger body of effort, emerged a series of works featuring him playing the violin. It is from this world, that the LP Soundtrack From First Violin Film, with its disembodied sounds, grew. Naumans violin works, as they exist in the world, are only distant cousins of performance and compositions. They are objects, doubling the signifiers of music and the body back upon themselves. Rather seeking entirely new and liberated sonic realms, they employ conceptual practice, instrument, and rhythm to strike direct confrontation. They could be understood as a conceptual inversion of recordings by John Cage or of musique concrète. Rather than seeking to utilize non-instrumental sources to create music, Nauman used instrumental sounds and references to make something which is not music at all, highlighting the dimensional possibilities of meaning, and the elasticity of language. Comes in full-color cover with printed inner sleeve housing a Nagaoka anti-static record sleeve; Includes an original insert that functions as Obi; Yellow-colored vinyl; Edition of 300." - Blume.

A copy of the record is already in the collections of both the Whitney Museum of American Art and the British Library and may be soon in the MOMAs too. Bruce Nauman is considered one of the most influential contemporary artists today, having created numerous genre-defining works through the exploration of the body and language, as well as performance over the past 50 years. His innovative and provocative ideas are expressed in a wide range of media and materials, which makes it difficult to categorize his work as inhabiting a single style. Even throughout his sixties, he has continued to work primarily in sculpture and video, exploring language and the physical body with unusual themes based on animal and human body parts.
