I MADE THIS HANDMADE ON OF A KIND BOOK WITH CASSETTE INSERTS.

Hannum’s influences shine through clearly on Via Negativa, a throwback album that manages to not at all bask in self-importance or pretense.  Locrian have not hit that Spinal Tap-esque misdirection that often precedes a release of this nature, nor do I think things will take that turn for the trio.  Instead, it is strong work that does what a good solo album should, namely showcase the individual’s contributions to a band, and take that in directions that may not fit in the main project.

I’ve been making these books using j-cards from cassette I have been destroying. Enjoy this flip through.

"This transition from things analog and tangible to the spectral world of digital sensory experiences propagated invisibly by devices with few if any moving parts is poetically illustrated by Terrence Hannum’s striated geometric abstractions featuring magnetic cassette recording tape arranged in cryptic striped patterns. Mute yet resonant, their orderly arrangements of metallic oxides hark to John Cage and the pioneers of musique concrete, only here they echo the silent music of an eclipsed technology."

THE EXHIBITION IS UP AT JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY IN NEW ORLEANS, LA UNTIL SEPT. 27th

My mom cleaned out the thrift store in Naples of all of their tapes, I have no qualms destroying these for my art.
