101 Cassette Labels

Posted on Aug 21, 2009 - 07:55 AM
101 Cassette Labels

New media mavens and New York New Museum associates Rhizome created a marvelous, if raw, resource on Wednesday with the publication of 101 Cassette Labels. Contemporary cassette culture is a wonky, contrary game that emphasizes time taken and objects treasured, and the wealth of cassette labels sprouting from remote scenes in places like Michigan and Ohio manage to stay very weird despite the homogenizing force of the Internet. Click through on some of Rhizomeā€™s links in the article, and be sure to look at the comments at the end for even more esoteric suggestions and some interesting counterarguments about cassette fidelity.
