CONTROL VALVE #024 IS NOW READY FOR DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
artist: Andrew Chadwick
Andrew Chadwick performs and records most frequently under the moniker Ironing, creating a collage of broken and modified records, microcassettes, tapes, and radio. Releases under his own name focus primarily on cut-up autobiographical lo-fi field recordings of the in between moments of everyday life.
Suede was a commercially available, mass marketed cassette until layer upon layer of recordings erased each other sedimentarily, obscuring nearly all of the original content. Carefully selected sounds via lo-fi phonography were recorded over post-market pop detritus. These captured everymoment sounds are both common and rare, familiar in their form but unique in space, time, and context. The lo-fi handheld cassette recorder used expands the act of recording as a compositional element to include the sound of the recording device itself.
All edits were made linearly within the tape recorder itself. All the sounds that remain, however slight, represent a choice for that moment to be represented instead of what was there previously.
Suede is made from the underside of the skin.
Recorded in Gainesville, FL during the end of 2009
-1 track of composed cassette phonography
