Dog As Master - Dog Food
available on cassette and CDR by request for $4.00 plus postage
1986 -- 20 minutes
Dog Food is another oddity in my catalog, and something of a novelty. A minimalist, random, chance process composition consisting of four tracks of sounds from a friend of mine and Deb's, Toby O'Brien, playing a Commodore 64 computer baseball game. The use of lo fi lo tech electronic consumer product sound samples prefigures much of my work at Tapegerm.com in the 2000s. Originally released on cassette in 1986, C20, on the Cause And Effect label.
from the January 1988 Cause And Effect catalog:
An interesting concept tape, a cut-up collage of electronic junk. Unique and a definite collector's item for the hardcore DAM fan.
"Sparse electronic run-away mod noise funk", Robin James, Sound Choice.
"An enjoyable listen; one that makes you smile", Scott Colburn, Blow It Off.
