1994-07-27 The Tape Beatles
"Media ecology" is a musical style where the "artists" use only found sound to weave together a new musical/acoustic experience. In this show I want to salute the work of that obscure group from Iowa known as the Tape Beatles. There are a number of other groups mixed in.
The show consists of: Tape Beatles, Zoviet France, Negativland, Pelican Daughters, Autopsia, Crosley Bendix and more.
This may sound fairly lighthearted, but this is way serious stuff. As William S. Burroughs said, "When you cut into the present the future leaks out." The ways in which this 1994 broadcast is relevant in 2007 are amazing.
