NEMO 023

The project: Creating audio (musical / spoken word,combination, etc) using "spam" (or "unsolicited electronic mail") email text as lyrical or thematic content.

All works, unless specified otherwise, are under a Creative Commons License and can be also downloaded from archive.org

What began as a simple administrative announcement on a Yahoo Group has become a CT-Collective Project. A person, virtual or real or both, by the name of “Teisha” started spamming the group with clearly “off-topic” posts. Users complained, and the moderator of the group took action. He sent an email to all stating that “Teisha is now banned.” Then someone suggested (I don’t know whether seriously or not) that “Teisha is now banned” sounded like a good name for a CT-Collective project. A few others, including myself, chimed in and after some exchanges, the project was created, and later formalized. The guidelines were simple: create a piece of audio using “spam” content as main thematic material.

I signed up for this song as it sounded like a great way to express some feelings on frustration. I was frustrated along with many other emotions when my wife left in June and would not speak to me…. but I could still get all the spam in the world whether I wanted it or not, frustrating…. I used a Roland Handsonic into a Gibson echoplex straight into my new Macbook. I played a Puerto Rican Cuatro made from Mango wood, along with some odd singing and whistling. I processed loops through an Alesis AirFX. I used some Garage band effects on some of the duplicate channels and some of the vocals.
