live broadcast sound collage

Broadcast live on Lookout FM for 24 hours on March 7, 2023 as a celebration of the 25th anniversary of The Big Lebowski.

The Special Collections Aleatoric Jukebox, after being fed the audio track of the film, selected random bits of random duration, layering up to 16 of these audio samples in patterns determined by an I Ching hexagram generator, to produce this surprisingly insightful audio essay on the circularity of language and the futility of understanding. 

And for those of you who re thinking “But the 25th anniversary of the Big Lebowski was March 6th,” well that’s far out. See you at the In-N-Out near Radford
