James Tallon

for processing, tape and slides

“Roadside Litter” is dedicated to the roadies, Dave and John. It is based on their carefully culled collections of acoustic and intellectual debris. An eclectic approach was taken to the organization of materials on the tape, with dramatic connotation, visual associations and sound patterns providing the fine structure within a overall framework related to the complexity, variety and ‘naturalness’ of the sounds involved. Processing involves the use of digital delays and equalizers, the latter being used to remove blocks of frequencies from the sound at various times during the performance. The tape was realized with the assistance of Kevin Austin in the Concordia University eight track studio in January 1983. JT
