"We received an anonymous package containing this recording along with an image and a note. The three pieces in this suite were created by processing live radiocoverage of the 2004 presidential election using computer music software. While to some extent, the use of political media materials as source sounds in a work of radical music could be considered pat or outmoded, there was value in this endeavor. The transformative properties of digital signal processing allowed me to uncover the "choral" component inherent in news broadcasts: the anchors form a choir of voices singing in unison, complicit amongst themselves to the authorship whose script they are doomed to read from. The Agency of the newsanchor is limited, or submissive to government and capital, or both. I had concerns that simply processing my radio was not a truly radical platform. That being said, it is an attempt to tear away the fabric of appearances, and some kind of momentary relief was derived from the process. If you dont find this recording sonically or politically persuasive, try using a simple audio processing tool to dissect the media you absorb. You might be more edified by trying the process first-hand." - JYRK. Edition of 50 copies.
