The Paleontology Exhibit Area

Welcome to the "ancient history" portion of our exhibit, wherein we display objects from the dawn of...

...scratch that. These are a number of examples of the kind of work I started out doing back in the days of "cassette culture" in the 1980s. They're direct transfers from the original cassette releases on my own little Art Level label, courtesy of Robert Carlberg, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude, not least for reminding me of who I used to be. I'm including a pair of pieces from each of my five releases, and hope you find them instructive, or at least entertaining. Please note and enjoy the yummy pre-digital tape hiss effect.

The Logic of Possible Worlds (1984)
Palapa (the Bitter Fruit)
Anaphora in Discourse

Interregnum (1986)
