Dust Archive, a collection of found tapes

Post by arnoux » Tue Jan 28, 2020 7:21 am

On 23/09/19 at about 12 (CET) a cardboard box was found at the front door of our studio.
The only information on the box (handwriting all caps) was a small code (A.D. 2020) and the cryptic warning "KEEP AWAY FROM MAGNETIC FIELDS".
As we opened the box a smell of old attic spread like if the content was sealed in there since forever.
Inside the box we found 12 dusty folders, each including a variable number of magnetic tape spools and disparate items (paper material, prints, photographs, VHS tapes..).
The puzzling findings unfold a high degree of space-time discrepancy, with dates, locations and names that don't add up, certainly leaving the awareness of being faced with a very strange puzzle, way too elaborate to be a joke, too full of meanings to be a fake.
Unable to tell what it was, we decided to start an archive to catalog and publish the content of the box, one folder at the time.
We called it: Dust Archive.

Quite apart from the music, which is great, I very much like your unified graphic design. Very cool project overall.

As we wait for the final issue of the 1st year of activity, including the last 3 audio spools and additional items, I'd love to report we updated the story linked to the facts concerning Dust Archive. Here it is:

"On 23/09/19 at about 12 (CET) a cardboard box was found at the front door of our studio.
The only information on the box (handwriting all caps) was a small code (A.D. 2020) and the cryptic warning "KEEP AWAY FROM MAGNETIC FIELDS".
As we opened the box a smell of old attic spread like if the content was sealed in there since forever.
Inside the box we found 12 dusty folders, each including a variable number of magnetic tape spools and disparate items (paper material, prints, photographs, VHS tapes..).
The puzzling findings unfold a high degree of space-time discrepancy, with dates, locations and names that don't add up, certainly leaving the awareness of being faced with a very strange puzzle, way too elaborate to be a joke, too full of meanings to be a fake.
Unable to tell what it was, we decided to start an archive to catalog and publish the content of the box, one folder at the time.
We called it: Dust Archive."

Hope you have time to check out the credits on each album too, it's a labour of love that took us 1 year of work, I'd love to hear your feedback!

Here we go with the second year of Dust Archive, check out the credits on Bandcamp to dive into the story



After Dust Archive made public the finding known as "A.D. 2020" the existence of 4 other boxes was reported to us.
The boxes appeared at different locations in different times (all prior 2020) puzzling the discoverers,
them referring to the content as "familiar but not identifiable", "a far memory, but from someone else", "photos of places I might have dreamed of".
Strangely enough, on top of any box a code, in blue ball pen: "A.D. 2021".
