A while back, I was asked to take some of my recordings of telephone conference lines and arrange them into some sort of recording or demonstrative collage. The idea was that it would be a cornerstone of a presentation and appearance at an event. Over time, I decided the event was not something I wanted to be part of, but in the meantime, I’d created a collage of telephone conference recordings, as a prototype. As I figure I spent some time on it, and some folks enjoy my editing, I thought I’d drop it here.
It’s about 20 minutes, uses a bunch of CC-SA music, and combines probably 20-30 clips from various voicemails, conference calls and the like from the audio.textfiles.com website.
It’s a little strange, a little jarring, occasionally transcendental. I guess the best name for it is “Listen!” because that word shows up a few times in there. The influence of the Negativland KPFA show Over the Edge should be obvious. And if it’s not… you should really check out the Negativland KPFA show Over the Edge!
Enjoy it with my compliments.
