Black Artists Group in Paris


Aries 1973

Echos (Bowie, Lake, Shaw, Le Flore, Carroll)
Something To Play On (Shaw)
Re-Cre-A-Tion (Lake)
OLCSJBFLBC (Bowie, Lake, Shaw, Le Flore, Carroll)


The Black Artists Group was an unit not unlike that of The Art Ensemble of Chicago. Except they only recorded this one document and it only came out in France on a label named after the group. This is squeaky, spindly stuff and very OPEN and a good indication of what was happening in the early 70's with members Oliver Lake (later of the infamous World Saxophone Quartet) and Joseph Bowie (Art Ensemble's Lester Bowie's bro, later to start Defunkt).

Various – Chicago '82: A Dip in the Lake

Ned Sublette 


A Dip in the Lake—Ten Quick Steps, Sixty-one Waltzes and Fifty-six Marches for Chicago and Vicinity (1978) initially came about as a request from Chicago Magazine and composer Raymond Wilding-White, in 1976. The graphic score (a map of Chicago with superimposed coordinates) now resides in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art. The actual street intersections are published by Henmar Press.

We decided to house this area premiere in the SS Clipper. Therefore, the environmental sounds from the specified intersections were recorded on magnetic tape. To manage the playback of these sounds, John suggested that I follow the instructions to Rozart Mix (a tape collage written for Alvin Lucier and the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, 1965). The directions indicate that we make tape loops after cutting the recorded tapes into numerous pieces of varying lengths (from tiny fragments up to five inches). Then:
Splicing together ignorantly sometimes not , or, but , etc. Make only a few shortest viable lengths, make some very long—and all lengths in between, perhaps determining lengths by chance. There should be at least as many loops as there are keys on a piano. *

I used the I Ching to determine the lengths of the loops between ten inches and thirty feet, and we assembled them at a tape-splicing party. They are to be played simultaneously on at least twelve portable tape machines, each with a built in loudspeaker. One operator per machine maintains, repairs, and exchanges the loops, while present at an assigned station on the boat. The audience is encouraged to move about from station to station in order to experience the variety of sound collages.

A Dip in the Lake, like the first of the city pieces, 49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs (1977) can be transcribed for other cities by assembling new lists of local addresses.

John Bender-Early Cassettes 1981-1983

John Bender-Early Cassettes 1981-1983

Ridiculously scarce cassettes from this Cincinnati OH avant-garde electronic artist. What could be better than more Bender?
Packing List:1982
This tape's title came from the fact that original versions were packaged without plastic cases,in oiled envelopes that opened at the narrow end,had bendable metal clasps, were used to hold shipping documentation, and were labeled PACKING LIST. In this tape, as in others, the intent was to create a sequence of sound events to be used as an undercurrent to social intercourse. Not intended as MUSAK, nor Eno's ambience, nor Satie's furniture music,its purpose was to weave itself in and out of conversation and play a more active role in human interaction.
Plaster: the prototypes 198?
Longer, weirder versions of some of material self-released on Record Sluts. 
Do the cage. 1983
this tape was created as an audio installation intended as audio atmosphere intended to cloud thought intended to divert intended to distract from more important issues intended to act as a swarm of gnats formless enough to allow focus varied an abrupt enough to catch the ear.
At the 4th St. C.A.G.E. 1981
A sound collection presented for sale at a  function of the Cincinnati Artists Group Effort
BONUS-JOHNNY VORTEX TRAILER TAPE
used at performances where access to the performance space required use of an elevator. this endless tape was stuck in a boom box placed on top of the elevator so customers would become auditorily prepped for what was about to happen.

Saw you turning up the stairs
It’s been years since you’ve been here
Things are still gone but things aren’t the same
There’s no chance that you’ve been tranced
You’ve been complicated
You’ve been rather duplicated
You’ve been recreated
You’ve been replaced
Go down town cause I lost count
Now your eyes changed but your still the same
Oh no Oh no you’ve been complicated
You’ve been duplicated
You’ve been resignated
You’ve been replaced
