Back in 1999-2000, the Zeitgeist Gallery (where I had been habituating in the basement) acquired a transmitter. Radio Free Cambridge sprung to life with archaic music recordings, impromptu free-form spoken-word monologues and live,freeform jazz-noise psychedelic freakout performances.
My own contribution was a weekly broadcast of live, improvised noise collages. These usually incorporated odd thrift-store purchased records & tapes, several broken tape players (whose built-in defects and flaws I exploited to the breaking point) and whatever ragged music instruments I could get my hands on. Not quite musique concrète, but an amusing diversion - for me, at least. The fun ended in February 2000 when the FCC, responding to an anonymous complaint, shut the station down.
I edited down the tapes to what (I thought) were the most interesting moments. Very little of what can be heard on these recordings were generated by me personally; it’s mostly just me fooling around in the closet-sized radio room with whatever I could get my hands on, trying to make interesting noises.
I post these things online as a curious artifact of those halcyon times and, hopefully, to provide some enjoyment for the unusual person who might enjoy this sort of thing. Thank you for listening, whoever you are!
