With issue 53, Visionaire conquered the fifth and final sense: hearing. SOUND arrived as a set of five 12-inch double-sided vinyl records, boasting artwork by Cindy Sherman, Robert Longo, Raymond Pettibon, and Ryan McGinley, among others. The records featured music and sound pieces by musicians David Byrne, U2, Michael Stipe, Courtney Love, Cat Power, Laurie Anderson, Adrock, Lee Ranaldo, Antony & the Johnsons, Thurston Moore & Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth), Malcolm McLaren, Andrew WK, Danger Mouse; Artists Yoko Ono, Cerith Wyn Evans, Helmut Lang, Christian Marclay, Doug Aitken, Gary Hill, Vito Acconci, Mariko Mori; Bands The Knife, Littl’ans, Unkle, Animal Collective, SunnO))), Gang Gang Dance; DJ’s Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky), miss kittin, Trevor Jackson, Towa Tei, Nigo, Hiroshi Fujiwara; Fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, Stefano Pilati; and many more. The issues came complete with a MINI “vinyl killer” — a toy car equipped with needle and speakers that played the contents by “driving” the records. The issue made for the first self-sufficient sound system of its kind — and certainly the most artful one to date. Of course, the issue included CD’s so one could download the issue onto his or her iPod for more easy listening on the go. Even David Byrne, who contributed a one-minute song, admitted that “there were songs I loved and added permanently to my playlist.”
