The Rally

from Time Capsule by John Oliver



Composed 1982. After creating "The Prisoner" – see track 1 on this release – I attended a political rally in Ottawa and recorded the speeches there. I brought those back to the McGill University “Wall of MOOG” studio and began remixing these in with the other materials I had used in the earlier piece. I transformed those speeches using various modulation paths and filters on the MOOG, and then once again did montage, reversing bits of tape, and multiple passes from two tape machines to a mastering machine.
