The Death of Analogies (CD)

(1996)

Audio work published as a solo CD by ND (now defunct) in Austin, Texas, 1999.

 

None of the sounds from the installation The Death of Analogies appear on the CD, although the photographs on the CD cover are of the installation.



Audio piece for short attention spans that demands a lot of attention. It is intended to function as a piece that would cause friction with its neighbors on the air. On the radio, the sections of The Death of Analogies are analogous to those in-betweens, those intersections or incisions between longer pieces (usually music) and the host talking. Normally, these intrusions consist of ads, station identifications, promotional announcements, and "stingers"; all are instrumental in shaping a radio station's "sound". My vexes are the bursts and blips of an imaginary radio station.

The raw material used dated as far back as 1985 and as recently as the day of assemblage. The approach stressed fluidity and adopted an ear capable of discerning and aiding interesting sonic collisions and accidents.
