Push Pull Empty Full
This is a compilation I made about two years ago. In fact, the main reason for this blog is to catalog the various mixes I've done over the past few years, of which more soon. This mix, like the others, brings together unreleased pieces from 70s public info films, early computer art, children's TV, and library records. It's sort of a sound collage meant to evoke the experience of channel flipping through half-remembered sounds and images. Much of this is ripped directly from video, with the ambient dialogue and foleys left in. Basil Kirchin fans will find some soundtrack work from cult films like "Assignment K" and "The Strange Affair." I've taken the title and artwork from a children's book by Tana Hoban (which I pinched from the amazing blog http://referencelibrary.blogspot.com/). Tracklist in comments.
