AVEY TARE AND GEOLOGIST'S HIGH SCHOOL PROJECT
Avey Tare: The whole thing was based on this winter taking over this town, all these different scenarios where people were falling into ice.
Deakin: The way I came into thinking about [musique concrète] was by hearing the stuff they were doing. They did this 40-minute long piece that was just this symphony of sound. Like a sonically visual thing and it was kind of the first time I thought about the fact that I was listening to something with headphones with my eyes closed. I became aware of what sound was doing. I thank them for opening that for me.
Geologist: Very Winesburg, Ohio,” Sherwood Anderson, but a nightmare version. We would use samples and that would become part of the narrative. My wife, who was my girlfriend at the time, still has a cassette in her huge thing of dubbed cassettes from high school. You can see in marker: BRIAN + DAVE.
