  2. A Musical Tribute to Edgar Varèse, April 17, 1981

    In the archives world, sometimes the least expected finds are somehow the most rewarding. The satisfaction of unearthing a rare gem derives not from the serendipity (or luck) of it all, but rather from the feeling of having been working in your field long enough to have earned the reward –much like gold prospecting.

    So it was in 2012, while transferring audio for Q2 Music’s collaboration with Carnegie Hall, American Mavericks. One of the requested items, stored in an offsite vault in New Jersey, was a set of three open reel tapes in boxes which were scarcely labeled as "Varèse 4/17/81." After a quick turn in the oven (the tapes are of an era and type which require this special treatment), we put the tapes on the reel-to-reel machines. The barely-lebeled tapesBut wait: this crowd noise…this reaction… this sound… surely this was not a concert of classical music –much less of music by the notorious enfant terrible of the avant-garde, Edgard Varèse? Had a rock concert recording somehow been placed in the wrong tape box?

    Further research was necessary. Was this… could this be… the legendary 1981 tribute to Varèse at New York City’s Palladium? The concert famously hosted by Frank Zappa (a longtime Varèse fanatic) and performed by Joel Thome’s Orchestra of Our Time, bootlegs of which had been circulating for decades?

    Indeed it was: a complete, pristine recording of a remarkable show that has not been forgotten by those who participated or attended –a “curious but appropriate meeting of music and milieu,” as the New York Times put it (mildly). When else has there been a concert of decidedly uncompromising music been performed in a 3000-seat rock venue for an enthusiastic, young audience?

  3. Oral History of Mark Mothersbaugh

    Interviewed by Chris Garcia on 2017-11-13 in Los Angeles, CA X8389.2018 © Computer History Museum

    Mark Mothersbaugh co-founded the pop music combo Devo at Kent State University in 1973. For the 18 years, they would release many seminal albums exploring themes of de-evolution, technology, post-modernist de-humanization, often with a satirical bent. Devo worked heavily with synthesizers and digital-analog hybrid systems to create a signature sound that influenced many bands of the 1980s and 90s.

    Following Mothersbaugh’s work with Devo, he would become a regular composer of scores for film and television, including working on programs such as Peewee’s Playhouse, Rugrats, and many of the films of director Wes Anderson. His music makes use of electronic instrumentation and production techniques. He is also credited as one of the first composers to create a score specifically for a video game. Mothersbaugh founded Mutato Musika in 1989 to create music for film, television, and video games.

    Mothersbaugh has also been a life-long artist and printmaker. His works, both traditionally and digitally created, have been printed in books and displayed in museums around the world.

  8. Setting the Record Straight by Going Wayback

    The public web is a fact checker’s dream, but not everything stays up forever. More than just an invaluable contribution to collective memory, the practice of web crawling, indexing and archiving empowers the research and journalism that is ultimately required to speak truth to power.
