In The Bin [Issue
#25] Vijay Iyer And Mike Ladd Still Life With Commentator
The unusual concept
of this album is electronic music by Vijay Iyer as the sound bed for a mixture
of vocals and spoken word created by Mike Ladd, apparently from newscasts and
blogs. You could call it found poetry, word salad, cut-ups, or spaced-out rap.
An enjoyable example is Jon Stewart on Crossfire with its refrain
Please stop, youre hurting America.
