THE PLANETS: A SUITE OF SIX 10-INCH RECORDS (MUSIC), 1984.
Collected from special effects sound libraries, the music - like Jack Goldstein's paintings - communicates in images.

The records are "spaces" for the imagination, Recollections of half-forgotten sci-fi soundtracks, they hover between the known and the unknown. The sound/images are shadowy remembrances gleaned from our all available culture of surveillance. In their recorded from they bear only a shadow of their former cultural life (of soundtrack movie music).

New Music Distribution Service, Annual 1984.
Cover: 6 records, 25cm, 33RPM, n.d.(1986), in a brown painted box.
The records have black labels without defining text anywhere.
They are packed in green protective covers, Neutral Records, New York, No. 7.

Goldstein konstruiert die LPs mit analogen Mitteln: die Orchestrierung winziger Bruchstücke von Geräuscheffekten (The Quivering Earth, 1977) oder von Musik (The Unknown Dimension, 1977), oder von beiden (Planets, 1984) zu einem einheitlichen Bild-Effekt. Planets (Uranus, Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, Oberon): der Traum von neulich, ein doppeltes Echo, das über die unüberbrückbare Entfernung zwischen dem Ich und seiner Erscheinung ruft. Nicht die Erscheinung ist irreführend, sondern nur das, was das Verlangen von ihr verlangt. Hier im Verschwinden des Bildes wird der Wunsch in eine Leidenschaft transformiert, die Blanchot beschreibt als "...die eisigste von allen, weil sie über eine große Niederlage triumphiert hat und fortan über sie triumphieren wird, in jedem Augenblick und immer so dass die Zeit für sie nicht mehr existiert."* *Maurice Blanchot, "The Two Versions of the Imaginary", in The Space of Literature.
