While Mauss is generally known for his paintings and sculpture work, Music for Inversions his first major performance piece.
The 12-inch documents Gordon's musical accompaniment and is being pressed up in a run of 250 copies. The silk-screened cover art, which you can see up above, was done by Mauss. You can make an email inquiry on pre-orders by contacting [email protected]
