Quotes by Travis Elborough  (?)

“The catechism of the vinyl LP involved a complex series of rituals over sleeves, sides played, needles, fluff and cloths, that were only enhanced by the scents of the record (rather waxy) and cardboard (woodlouse dampish, if anything) that mingled with the actions like incense.”
Travis Elborough, The Long-Player Goodbye: The album from vinyl to iPod and back again

“But deserts, even the driest and least inviting to animals and plants, contain subtle multitudes. And rather like silences (outside of vacuums) and as John Cage demonstrated with his famous 4'33" piece, they are often noisy with life.”
Travis Elborough, Atlas of Vanishing Places: The Lost Worlds as They Were and as They are Today

“Still, while the Old Testament God of Genesis might well have used the sixth day of the week to create all the creatures that lived on dry land, in the contemporary epoch Fridays, surely, are more readily associated with winding down than embarking on bold new exercises in urban development.”
Travis Elborough, Atlas of Vanishing Places: The Lost Worlds as They Were and as They are Today
