FOUND SOUNDS is a 3 CD-R & DVD-R set of
audio found on (mostly) discarded answering machine tapes.
Way back in the mid-90's I started collecting
answering machine tapes from used answering machines being sold
at thrift stores. The intent was to edit them down and play
'em on my radio
A few peeps have even
scoured thrift stores in other states for me (thanks Lisa!),
which led to the discovery of the "letter tape" some
guy made for his girlfriend while driving from Chicago to St,
Louis (er, maybe it was St, Louis to Chicago, whatever...).
After hearing this tape, I decided it was so
truly wretched that I needed to share it with the rest of the
world, so I made it into a little film using various driving
footage. The end result is the included DVD “Becky, ya
got yer space, babe...”
This dude goes on and on for about an hour,
talking about all kindsa shit, and playing some pretty awful
music during the drive. So, so bad it's good!
The set contains over 230 tracks... take
a listen to some of 'em here
if you'd like...
