OSWALD, JOHN : 69 plunderphonics 96 (Dbl CD and book)

Quantity in Basket:none

Likely the most essential release of 2001. 60 tracks covering the period 1969 to 1996 - including all 25 tracks from the infamous banned Plunderphonic CD -in re-mastered and alternate versions. Plus a 44-page, handbound, hardcover book, featuring a 30,000 word interview with Oswald who discusses the process and the cultural and historical context of the tracks, plus many of his own full-colour photo-collage images. Along with Cage's 4-33, Schaeffer's Etude aux Tourniquets, Oswald's Plunderphonic has to be one of the pivotal musical paradigm shifters of the second half of the C20.
