Zin Taylor, The Allegorical Function Of Dirt: A Discussion With Aki Tsuyuko's Ongakushitsu. Volume 1 of an open-ended dialogue. Translations by Shinobu Akimoto. S.l. 2011. Two-wire saddle-stitched booklet. 14 x 18 cm, 10 pp. Printed on uncoated, thin newspaper-like paper. Very good condition. Clean and intact. Lower corners of the front page slightly browned.

The publication appeared on the occasion of Zin Taylor’s exhibition Growth at KIOSK (08.10.2011 – 27.11.2011). Aki Tsuyuku's full-length album Ongakushitsu was released in 1999 on Childisc Records in Japan. Originally printed in a run of 2500 copies, the album was re-issued in North America one year later by Moikai Records on 12" vinyl and CD with additional production by label founder and musician Jim O'Rourke.

Zin Taylor: “In The Allegorical Function of Dirt: a discussion with Aki Tsyuko’s Ongakushitsu I approached the full-length of Tsuyuko’s album as a base to inform the production of a video featuring twelve landscapes that I had constructed from dirt. My forming of dirt is a visual response to what I imagined to be Tsuyuko’s forming of music into a narrative voice. I read Aki Tsuyuko’s use of the organs and keyboards to compose music as mediators that would record her constructions from the formless material of sound. The completed video containing the discussion between dirt and music was sent to Tsuyuko and a booklet documenting our correspondence accompanies the work.'

Aki Tsuyuku is a musician and animator who lives and works in Japan. In addition to her solo music, she regularly contributes vocals for the albums of Nobukazu Takamura, Assembler, Mice Parade, and the Chicago band Brokeback.
