Wolf Vostell - Dé-Coll/age Musik (Multhipla, 1982)

Much of Wolf Vostell's work deals with the idea of de-collage--just as it sounds, rendering the whole into parts. He put this into practice with video and with sound, with his sound contributions being of interest here. The recordings are offered chronologically, beginning in 1959, around the same time he was unveiling his TV dé-coll/ages, and extending to 1981. Real-life events, dialogues, and existing recorded materials are spliced apart, ragged at the ends. For any interested in his video work, I've included "Sun in your Head" from 1963 as well.
