Night Music: Tape Chants

July 30th, 2009 | music

YouTube clip, but audio-only. Stick with it. From the uploader:

Gregg Kowalsky playing his Tape Chants piece live at the Fairchild Chapel in Oberlin, OH. 6-10 cassette players were positioned around the chapel with source material of different sorts, Gregg walked around and made a live mix, slowly adjusting volume and speed/pitch. On tour with Ben Bracken. Dark night at the Fairchild.

The album is on eMusic.

  3. oh oh must mention Phil Kline and in particular, his annual (still taking place?) boombox flashmob holiday event “Unsilent Night”

  4. Have you ever taken a shit- so hard- that it literaly (and I mean literaly in the opposite way that uninteresting people use the word literaly as a catch phrase for every experience ever felt by their pea brain minds, yes I am talking to you who order a triple venti hoco choco snickertastic caloric rape fest drink which passes for coffee (are you supposed to pull a neck muscle when you type?)) felt as if a fist was ramming through your anus, a shit that nearly buckled your knees because it was so releaving and glorious, that’s exactly what this sort of thing makes me think of.
