IF, BWANA - RADIO SLAVES (CD)


"Originally issued as a limited edition cassette "Radio Slaves" on the Medicinal Tapes (France) in 1986, then re-issued on CDr by the Generator Sound Art (USA) in 2003, this album finally released on CD with some bonus tracks. Loopy and sampledelic, it will return the spirit of 80s into your ears. Great collage music from the pioneering american experimental sound project. "Radio Slaves" album was recorded in 1986, when Al Margolis had just gotten the Casio sampler SK-1. It was cheap and easy to use, producing very short loops, probably only up to 4 seconds. Almost the entire recording uses that technology, loops completely populating the pieces. These works in particular make use of samples from the radio and vinyl as the main sound sources - the LP scratches heard on some of the tracks are meant to be there, as they are an integral part of this work."
