Liam O’Gallagher – Ode to Gravity

(C-60 cassette, jointly released by Slowscan and Counter Culture Chronicles, 2020)

Liam O’Gallagher’s Ode to Gravity is the second joint release on cassette by Slowscan and Counter Culture Chronicles. The cassette, designed by André Koolmees, contains three audio works (“mutant fantasies”) by O’Gallagher that were broadcast by KQED, San Francisco’s public TV station, on 28 July 1971:
2021 is a reply to video artist Philip Gietzen’s question whether science fiction will be “science fact” in 2021. It was used as the soundtrack to a video by Gietzen, which premiered at the Philo T. Farnsworth Memorial event at the Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco in June 1971. Super/Software is a cut-up text which appeared in O’Gallagher’s The Blue Planet Notebooks published in 1972 by the San Francisco underground magazine Organ. Past/Future Time is a cut-up which includes material from a record found in the elevator of 205 West 57th Street, San Francisco. (from KQED’s TV guide)
