This is a work whose reputation often precedes it, and many composers mention it as an influence even if they’ve only read about it. The piece explores the degenerative effects of recording and re-recording the same sound through the use of microphone and two tape recorders. The composition consists of a set of instructions for making these recordings and splicing them together in the order in which they were recorded.
