Interessante Aufnahmen von der ID BATTERY-Hlfte und gleichzeitig einem der aktivsten Sound-Art-Philosophen. Tnende Lautsprecher werden hier mit Drhten abgenommen und hrbar gemacht, es entstehen leicht sgend-metallische, angenehme Vibrationen...

"Each track of "music on a short thin wire" was produced by using two of the first eight CD releases by Ground Fault Recordings. Chosing the discs in order of their release dates, I played two CDs simultaneously through separate players, and separate channels, splitting the CDs to a single speaker (one CD left, the other right). Using the speakers themselves as the main sound source the paper cone -- I attached short thin copper wires to their surfaces. I then attached the other end of the wires directly to contact microphones. Playing the CDs activated the speakers, and in turn caused the wires to vibrate. These vibrations in essence are direct "sympathetic" translations of the dynamic fluctuations of the music being played, though respond quite erratically. The following tracks are excerpts from these recordings; each track refers to two specific CDs." [from the liner notes]
