BURGESS, ANTHONY - CONVERSATIONS WITH THE ANTHONY BURGESS CASSETTE ARCHIVES (1964-1993) (2LP)


"Double LP version. Includes insert. A collection curated by Alan Dunn in collaboration with the International Anthony Burgess Foundation and Sub Rosa. Anthony Burgess's second wife Liana carried a cassette recorder with her at all times to capture her life with the author and their son, Andrew. This extraordinarily intimate audio archive of over 1,000 cassettes now sits with the International Anthony Burgess Foundation and artist Alan Dunn has been granted access to select excerpts from it and curate sonic conversations from others. The first disc contains the very first and last known recordings of Burgess's voice alongside domestic incidents, rehearsals, and answering machine messages, while the second disc invites 23 artists and musicians to remix the rare material into a unique Burgess portrait, far beyond A Clockwork Orange (1962). Features The Reverend Max Ripple, Vicky Clarke, Dinah Bird, Alan Dunn & Noisesurfer, Roy Claire Potter and Kieron Piercy, Mark Vernon, David Birchall, Marion Harrison, Jeff Young, Scanner, Ade Blackburn/Clinic & Paul Sullivan/Static, Foreign Investment, Tobias Hazan, Eye Suriyanon, Band Of Holy Joy (James Stephen Finn & Johny Brown), Chris Watson, and Guy-Marc Hinant & Laszlo Umbreit."
