Radio Programme, No. 1: Henry Jacobs' “Music and Folklore”

Experimental radio programs from San Francisco’s KPFA station produced this series of "audio collages," which includes an eclectic mix of electronic music, a "sonata for loudspeaker," a polyrhythmic improvisation created by sampling "primitive percussion instruments and voice," and spoofed interviews with a phony scholar and musicians.
