That phrase, “It’s been done,” is a modernist idea, we don’t say that anymore.  We just recycle stuff.

DINING ON SHORT WAVES
(2001)
This was one of four pieces winning the 4X4 award from the Glasgow Centre for Contemporary Arts.  The chair of the selection panel was Robin Rimbaud (Scanner), and here’s how he described it:
Michael V. Farley’s work “Dining On Short Waves” presents two bar phrases of short wave band caught up in a collage of random needle drops, scratches and cuts in the groove of an LP.  The sonic scuffling irregularities of this raw material creates a fragmented miniature around an object of history, the vinyl record.
