Cafe Curio: Open Music Archive - DJ set: Eileen Simpson and Ben White

6 October 2011

1920s, 30s and 40s recordings are altered and encoded through autotune, reversed playback and flipped lyrics — techniques ported from R&B and Hip Hop production. The resultant filtering ensures the suppression of layers still under proprietary ownership but enables the escape of copyright-expired elements that are, for the first time, released into the public domain.

Part of Song Division - a series of experimental events exploring the sonic potentials of materials gleaned from the edges of the public domain. Commissioned by Camden Arts Centre to accompany the Nathalie Djurberg and Haroon Mirza exhibitions.
