featuring Nick Rhodes

Visionaire 53: Sound is a limited edition 5 x 12" vinyl (picture disc) compilation box set featuring Nick Rhodes, released by Visionaire Publishing on 1 December 2007.

About the box setEdit

The box set is a collaboration by Visionaire magazine and the British car manufacturer MINI, which is a music project dedicated to the theme of sound.

Packaged inside a specially produced domed case, the set consists of five 12" vinyl picture disc records, imprinted with images that together contain more than 100 minutes of sound content from audio experiments to unreleased songs, samples and spoken word pieces.

Also included is a MINI Clubman 'Vinyl Killer' record player: a battery-operated toy car, containing speakers and a needle. As the little car moves along a record's groove, it plays each track, acting as a fully portable record player and sound system. Beyond all this, the issue also includes two CDs with all of the sound content gathered digitally, as well as a booklet of credits and instructions. The set box was a limited edition on 4000 copies.

Included is an abstract sound collage recording by Nick Rhodes entitled "Control Freak", recorded specially for the project.
