Various “Microcassette From A Greek Answering Machine” 3″CDr

QCS_120 Various “Microcassette From A Greek Answering Machine” 3″CDr (edition of 38)

The idea for this compilation came about when Manolis Pappas (Coherent States http://www.coherentstates.com/) found a damaged microcassette whilst out walking in the suburbs of Agia Paraskevi (Greece). He very kindly sent me the microcassette and upon receiving it just over three minutes of lo-fi audio was discovered: frenzied messages, background music/noise and beeps from the answering machine itself!

An open call was created inviting members of the Electronic Cottage community to download the found audio and rework it anyway they liked, the original callout is detailed here: https://www.electroniccottage.org/michael-ridge/ec-microcassette-call-out. Six artists responded: Frank Audiffret, Mike Nobody, Rinus Van Alebeek, Rafael González, Dylan Houser and myself, the result is an eclectic and superb mix of experimental audio art!

Rubber-stamped CDr is packaged in a clear plastic sleeve with folded colour art work. Each copy includes three paper inserts.
