about

NOTE--This album is NOT by the musical group 'The Art of Breathing' ... but rather 'The Art of Breathing' is the name of this album.

This was originally mixed on Over the Edge on 07/17/2015 on KPFA with Phineas Narco, Wobbly and Puzzling Evidence contributing to the mix. This was the last Over the Edge show done while Don Joyce was still alive. He was in the hospital on a respirator at the time. In loving memory of Don Joyce, who passed away a week after this show was mixed. Post-production work has been done on this show since that time.

This is a special combined mix of Parts 1 and 2 of the original NCN program taken from the mix on that night.

The original broadcast version of this program is up at Negativland's website here:

www.negativland.com/ote/?p=2589

This program will fit on 3 disks with Track 7 being the last track of disk 1, and Track 15 being the last track of disk 2. This is the highest fidelity version of this show available, with a +4khz and +40kbps MORE aural boost than the 128kbps 44khz mp3 version usually heard on the podcast and Mixcloud. Be sure to get the .flac or other lossless format versions.

In this edit, some of the more derivative mainstream samples have been expunged from the original broadcast.

For best effect, use headphones.

This program is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work, artistic and mostly satirical in nature. Subsequently, more derivative tracks are not available separately.

All derived and referenced material used herein is meticulously accredited and/or 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 'syntopical' arrangement.

Any proceeds from this work are considered donations to express appreciation for, and to help support, the expenses of the NCN project this program is a part of, and the creative work behind it,
