    1980s-1990s Cassette Culture Archives Thank you so much for your kind support!

    Hello listeners!



    Listen today on The Church of Noisy Goat to the album "TRUE and FALSE" ebulliently marking the debut of the recognized phenomenal sound artist Joseph Nechvatal here on this netlabel. He who has an acclaimed and vast career in the musical avant-garde genre of collage of sounds gave us his celebrated album so that we can present it today to our dear listeners and they in turn get to know a little of this musical work so well spoken by critics and the public..

    This amazing album of today was originally released by Nechvatal as a cassette tape in 1985 and it contains two killer tracks that correspond to two sides of a half hour long cassette tape. Experimenting with lo-fi arrangements and remixing on audio channels with samples of found sounds from the 80's era ranging from vocal loops, bass lines, guitar solos and drum rolls make this album a must-have historical piece for your music. collection on Bandcamp.

    Enjoy!

In True and False, Joseph Nechvatal keeps on recycling the sonic debris of the spirited mid-1980s, and even reuses some samples and sound clips from a previous cassette, Sleep (1983). The composer’s technique of sound collage and cut-up likens True and False to a huge aural paraprosdokian, in as much as the beginning of a sentence is pasted with the end of another, and a music excerpt is interrupted by another. I guess this utmost nonsense is what makes the tape such an hilarious experience, more than the ridicule of some sound excerpts. Whatever, we are treated with extensive excerpts from Miles Davis’ Get Up With It, moronic Japanese anime fight sounds, the Ghostbusters soundtrack (tr.#1, 8:40), Hollywood films dialogues, Brian Eno, New Order, etc – plus Joseph’s own synthesizer for good measure. In his introduction to Guido Cavalcanti Rime, Ezra Pound wrote that poets were “the great condensers of words” (from Margaret Fisher’s Ezra Pound’s Radio Operas, MIT, p. 149), and I would extend this description to Joseph Nechvatal, himself a great condenser of aural delicacies.
