In my last post I wrote about the PRISM surveillance scandal and how the United States government is taking more and more steps towards becoming a police state. Why would this happen?
While trying to look up information on an old reel-to-reel tape recorder that a previous resident left in our shed, I stumbled across this YouTube video that feels like a perfect symbol for Dance As You Are in many ways. The page about my musical influences starts my childhood story about being fascinated by my parents’ reel-to-reel tape recorder, and then chronicles various musical influences throughout my life. So in seeing vintage tape recorders used in a Rube Goldberg style to create minimal techno, I felt this to to be the perfect symbol of mixing old and new in creative ways.
Uncle Sam has hit the fan.
