A Fever Lecture

Posted by Cary Peppermint | Tue Feb 4th 2003 1 a.m.

This is a newly completed .mp3 version of one the technolectures from
"Conductor Number Seventeen." This particular technolecture along with 6
other technolectures will be given this Saturday, February 8th, 10pm at
Collective Unconscious in NYC.

The title of the lecture is "A Fever Lecture." The "music" part of the
lecture was re-mixed at 7:12pm on Tuesday, February 4th, 2003. The voice
track was recorded at 8:10pm and quickly deleted at 8:30pm and then a
vocal-preamble was recorded for the piece beginning at 8:42pm. The preamble
was edited once at 9:03pm, eliminating what the artist (me) deemed excessive
use of the of the word "goddamn." At 9:15pm the .aiff file was converted to
an .mp3 file and then promptly uploaded at 9:20pm for public reception at

http://www.restlessculture.net/downloads/fever_lecture.mp3

The piece runs at 10 minutes, 14 seconds. It is an 11.7 MB download. This
time is too long by popular music standards, however "A Fever Lecture" is
not intended as popular music. I have a 56k dial-up connection and the
piece took exactly 23 minutes to upload so 56k users could expect roughly
the same amount of time for the download. I imagine if you have a DSL/cable
connection or better this will be no problem.

Between now and May 2003 I will release 6 additional lectures from
"Conductor Number Seventeen" for download in .mp3 format.

Sincerely,
Cary Peppermint
