about

This is our version of Negativland's long-running series on their radio show 'Over the Edge' titled: 'Your Brain is the Universe'.

It was made from show #297 of UBRadio Salon and was mixed live in the UBRadio Salon studios in Alameda, CA, by Big City Orchestra and NCN on September 22nd, 2013. It was broadcast live at that time on DFM out of Amsterdam.

This program explores big questions: the nature and origin of the Universe, the limits of science, quantum mechanics, and what the future holds.

Phineas has done post-production work on it for the version available here at Bandcamp. The source for this was from the lossless master. See below for a link to the original webcast recording.

All the background and enveloping music you hear is original, and was done live and improvised by Big City Orchestra (dAS and Ninah Pixie). Phineas provided the content and timing of foreground samples.

This program is meant to be heard and taken in its entirety. All excerpted material has been used fairly in the creation of this syntopical, synthesized, and artistic impression of the cultural conversation it describes.

Total Running Time of this program mix is 1 hour, 29 minutes and 24 seconds.

______________

Dislcaimer: This program is not for sale and is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work. Subsequently, most tracks are not available as separate tracks.

All derived and referenced material used herein is meticulously accredited, fragmented, transformed, re-contextualized, and/or remixed from its original form, and is used fairly as a cultural reference in the subtext, and artistic narrative, of this unique program.

Any proceeds from this work are not necessary to give in order to listen to or download it, and when given are considered gratuities or donations to express appreciation for, and to help support, the expenses of the project this program is a part of, and the creative work behind it.

All the used material from the radio show "UB Radio Salon" used in this program is used with the express permission of the show's producers.

Thank you for listening, and thank you for your support.
