Have* you ever heard of Broken Music and anti-records?*

Dutch collector *Ed Veenstra *collects all kinds of music-objects by
plastic artists (a total of around 3,500) who have worked with sound at
some point in their careers, also known as Broken Music. Records, but also
what he calls “anti-records,” strange, impossible and unclassifiable
formats that approach the object from a radically different perspective and
exceed the traditional functions of the medium. His thorough and detailed
collection and classification work sheds light on the art world’s
fascination with sound and music.

An email conversation with Ed Veenstra can be found here
also a podcast on his approach to collecting these rare objects and how he
deals with them.

Last but not least: this is how they sound like

<http://rwm.macba.cat/en/memorabilia_tag/>is a podcast series that seeks to
break through to unearth and reveal private collections of music and sound
memorabilia. The documentary series is a historiography of sound collecting
that reveals the unseen and passionate work of the amateur collector while
reconstructing multiple parallel histories such as the evolution of
recording formats, archival issues, the sound collecting market and the
evolution of musical styles beyond the marketplace.
