John Oswald - Plexure


John Oswald is best known for pioneering and coining the term "plunderphonics." Plunderphonics is the use of pre-exisiting sound works to make your own works or sound collages. Oswald has been practicing Plunderphonics since the '70s, but is also a recognized saxophonist and media artist.
Here we have "Plexure" which was released in 1993, and it is one of my favorite Oswald works. This really has to be heard to understood, as words fail to describe it accurately. Listen close and you will hear everything from Gwar to Edie Brickell on this album.

  1. Well what can I say? I think this is the best post ever, and this kind of music is my favorite. It was very popular in the 70's and most of the people always enjoy the rhythmics and the lyrics too, specially if we're talking about John Oswald, he is the head behind all this sounds. 23jj

  2. I've been looking for his 1989 Plunderphonic recording but this will do nicely until I can find it. Many thanks.
