Sound art publication
Three issues self-released on cassette tape
Inspired by a personal fascination and fondness for field recordings, found sound, and the 1980s audio art publication Tellus Audio Cassette Magazine, I curated a three-issue cassette tape publication that featured audio experiments by painters, sculptors, comedians, illustrators, musicians, writers, performance artists, and one astrologer from around the globe. Participants were encouraged to deviate from their usual materials and apply their creative efforts to the medium of sound. Brooklyn-based artist and friend Marie Demple designed the covers and layout. Together we held public listening parties for Issues #1 and #2 at the Brooklyn DIY arts space Silent Barn and Topos Bookstore in Ridgewood, Queens. My research during the project led to a connection with New York sound artist Gen Ken Montgomery, who drew from his international network of sonic experimenters to guest-curate the final issue. I promoted the magazine with self-produced video infomercials. It was stocked at independent music and book stores around New York City.
