Program No. 10: John Perreault

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 75 min

One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. This program contains lengthy excerpts from two tape works pieces by John Perreault. The first work, “A Recorded Message,” features a tape loop with what sounds like a mechanized recording of someone saying “this is a recorded message” mixed over a soundscape of ambient sounds of automobiles and city streets. The second piece, “Traffic,” is a fairly straightforward field recording of traffic sounds made on West 10th Street between Bleeker and Hudson in New York City from 2 o’clock to 3 o’clock in the afternoon on September 25, 1969.
