The other installation series component is #7 'Allegory & Violence' by The Jack Bohlen Book Club. This baby is more used to hanging around fields with a tape recorder getting it on with blades of grass & nature man. Then Jack goes into town to buy a book on different types of grass & forgets he's left his tape player on so ends up recording the muffled sounds of the streets he's gently pacing. He hears this on playback and so delighted with his found sound recordings he laces the concoction with a slightly wavering one note keyboard line. Further on you get morphing, alien dissonance, Arabic chanting & various fascinating ambient tones, all forming their own little segments of pure sound to create a very satisfying journey If this doesn't sound very interesting then you'd be mistaken for this is the best form of sound collage, very organic, lightly intoxicating and satisfyingly minimal. Nice!
