A Different Nature on 04/01/13
Tonight on A Different Nature, we'll be featuring rare tracks from Don Joyce and Negativland.
Don Joyce joined Negativland after the Contra Costa California experimental collective joined him on his KPFA radio program Over the Edge (probably one of the longest running free-form, audio collage shows still in existence).
A long time visual artist, Joyce was inspired by Negativland's approach to collage in the audio medium and some began utilizing cut-and-paste tape collages to his program and subsequent Negativland recordings. He brought a dizzying array of cut-up sounds and recontextualized agitprop to Negativland's sound, where before they were more in line with Industrial Music, Musique Concrete, etc..
We'll hear some rare Don Joyce solo pieces and some from Negativland which are relatively unheard, even by Negativland fans.
