|A History of Sound Collage| ~ Wet Sounds


An audio retrospective in two parts

Part 1  (41min)  |   Part 2 (65min)

 The program identifies three types of sound collages .

[] Sequential sound collage that uses an editing technique that is not dissimilar to film editing technique, which later developed also to Electroacoustic music. [most Musique Concréte, cut ups, Negativland, People Like Us, Cassetteboy etc]

[] Narrative sound collage that augments a particular rhythm, musical and narrative theme [some hip hop, bastard pop, 2manyDJs, dancefloor mash ups, most music that uses samples]

[] and … Simultaneous sound collage that superimposes layers of different musical and sound sources over each other simultaneously.

The last category is the one this podcast focuses on from the latter half of the 20th Century until today. The audio is more music than talk.
