AAT #013 (03-20-09): The Texture of Noise

For lucky Argyll #13, we really brought the UB. Starting with an eerie silence, we soon filled the webwaves with some nods to the original AAT show and lots and lots of texture. This show features clips recorded in August, 1986 from On the Verge, a show astonishingly still on the air at people’s radio KKUP, Cupertino (Cowabunga!).

Given that this is our noise show, you can expect to hear a few improvised audio collages among the pop songs and experimental pieces. Together, let’s explore The Texture of Noise.
