Me, A Machine, And My Obsession: Transmission 267, 2016 March 16

durutti_column_bataclan.jpg Live albums seem to polarize people, for reasons I don't understand. "I don't like listening to people clap for things that happened when I wasn't there," I seem to recall a friend writing. Friend: if you're reading this, rest assured that the clapping on "Live At The Venue" is not very audible! Still, I love this recording, bootleggy though it may be.

In a previous life, I "did" live performance and I had/have some hangups about the recording of it. Not the paranoid hangups--I don't mind there being documentary evidence that I did a thing in a place at a time--but simply the aversion to watching / hearing myself do / say things in the past. The laws of space / time suggest that there are places where the past is always happening, but I don't have to visit those places! HOWEVER, I have no philosophical issues with recordings of OTHER people. Is this hypocritical, or just blithe? I'm going with the latter.

For damn sure I don't have any serious feelings about the ontology of live tapes. I'm fine with their being whatever the performers want them to be.
