The Vinyl Church is an interactive installation in which you will become immersed in sound, vision, and vibration. Located at Modern Art in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the Vinyl Church will conjure in you a sweet sense of our mechanical surround.
In the middle of the “Vinyl Church” there is an altar made up of a turntable and amplifier. There are speakers. And there are the records. Hundreds and hundreds of records chosen for their insistence upon another world; chosen for their intensities, desperate demands, and surplus of feeling; chosen for their longing, gnashing, crawling on your knees wailing, for their standing awestruck and bending harmonies. We invite you in to select, spin and listen to the specific albums that speak to you, and to hear the sound of the machines in between.
Vinyl Church is located at:
529 W. Chestnut St., Lancaster, PA 17603
a 15-minute walk from the Lancaster Amtrak station, 6 blocks from Franklin and Marshall College, and 4 blocks from beautiful downtown Lancaster
We are currently working to staff the Vinyl Church through the summer. Hours are by chance or by appointment, knock on the door or come on in if it's unlocked. And don't be shy about texting anytime if you'd like to get in: 610-761-9799.
You are cordially invited to the closing ceremonies for Machines in Between and the Vinyl Church.
