Resolution No. 78

This is a time-lapse rumination on the ruination of modern pop culture – the discarding and obsolescence of perfectly good media types and content by the brainwashed wretches who don’t know any better.

Un-planned and backwards, this is a complaint about how modern popular culture is garbage, and that – generally – what was, was better.

This piece started with a house chore. It took 8 takes and false starts to get started, which you only see at the end.

I composed the audio sound-bed (“Potluck Dinner”) in 1996. Using several dozen clips lifted from ancient 78 rpm records, old-time radio shows, contemporary news broadcasts and other period music, Potluck Dinner was designed as an audio metaphor representing the changes in the United States in late 1939, just after World War II had begun.
