Rough Trade Editions is a series of pamphlets bringing together the very highest calibre of artists, writers, poets, musicians, photographers, illustrators and thinkers to tell stories on the importance of counter-culture and why it will always matter. Ecstatic Data Sets is the 19th edition in the series and a manual for a music making machine of the near future. Whilst the technology already exists, these ideas are meant as a speculative projection, if read with a sympathetic ear this book could soon transform inside your mind and become the machine itself. Read it like a compressed file, unzip your imagination and consider a future where music can once again change the world.
