Jay Needham performs This is a Recording, a work for radio and video.

About This is a Recording, Needham writes:

My interest in creating This is a Recording is to recall radio as an instrument of memory, one that is capable of creating historical imaginaries where technologies and the desire to document stories unite. This is a Recording is also a work for video, a reflection on the process of adding to and being a part of historical records. The two works are performed live with a unique mixture of antique sound apparatus, micro-radio transmissions and video projection.

Jay Needham is an artist, radio producer, composer, Professor in the Department of Mass Communications, at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, and President of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology (ASAE).
