Cut Up Sound

November 24, 2008

Supergenius Jim Larrance, of No Soap Radio and more, has been putting up many of his wonderful audio cut-up tracks up for you to download or stream online. Many of them are newly minted out of his audio forge.
Uncle Jim is king of the audio cut-up and much of his work predates the computer audio editor. He’s a cut-and-paster par excellence and is and continues to be a huge inspiration to me. He was the first person who introduced me to the art of audio collage and also the cut-ups of William S. Burroughs, whom he used to play copious amounts of on his program in the Eighties.

He sat in on this last week’s Outside World and played some of his new material and had the crowded air-room in tears of laughter with an insane cutup of local news broadcasts.

Check out his website here.
