Code: SR08
Price: £12.00
Quantity in Basket: None
15 essential cut up pieces mostly made in the early '60s, as the techniques were developed. Burroughs speaks, records, rewinds, records at random, moves tape, cuts and splices; texts are mysterious, ominous, sardonic, with extraneous sounds, newsmedia and shortwave interpolated. There is also a short extract from a lecture Burroughs gave on the ' Origin and Theory of the Tape Cutups' in 1976, a radio talk fragment, some early '70s cassette works with multiple tape recorders, a performance piece and some short field recordings. Nicely presented.
