Institute 193, a Lexington, KY non-profit art space and publisher, will release an album titled “193 SOUND”, comprised of songs by 25 different Southern artists and musicians. The album will
be available for sale on April 20, 2013. On that day, which coincides with Record Store Day, artists featured on the record will perform at CD Central in Lexington, KY.
The artists featured on “193 SOUND” represent a wide variety of genres—from experimental noise to bluegrass. They display the remarkable diversity of cultural production in Kentucky and
across the Southeast.
Most of the artists included on the album have performed in Institute 193’s Lexington, KY gallery space. Others have collaborated with Institute 193 to explore personal projects that differ
from their day-to-day musical work.
A majority of the musicians featured on “193 SOUND” are from Kentucky: including Ben Sollee, Idiot Glee, Matt Duncan, Street Gnar, The Smacks!, Cross, Ellie Herring, Trailblazer, Goldenrod,
Three Legged Race, Resonant Hole, and Warren Byrom and the Canelands.
Kentucky artists Robert Beatty, Louis Zoellar Bickett II, and Ben Durham have contributed experimental sound pieces.
The writer Silas House delivers an introduction to the album, and also reads from a new work to the accompaniment of cellist Ben Sollee.
The record also includes tracks by artists from across the Southeast: the Atlanta band Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics, North Carolina fiddler Rayna Gellert, the Virginian duo Anna +
Elizabeth, the quilters Georgiana Pettway and Creola Pettway of Gee’s Bend, AL, and the Birmingham artist and musician Lonnie Holley.
“193 SOUND” highlights music by ex-pat Southerners Morgan O’Kane, Archer Prewitt, and Zeke Healy. The renowned videographer and musicologist John Cohen has contributed a 1950s
recording of a traditional Appalachian song performed by the Shepherd Family.
