Unidentified lecture on modern art

Item Information

Physical Details: 2 sound tape reels analog ; 7 in.

Description: An unidentified speaker compares how different languages express thoughts differently, to help explain the way that abstract modern art expresses thoughts differently than, say, realist art.

Reel 1 contains two overlapping recordings, recorded at different speeds. The recording on side 1 could not be isolated, and contains noise from a second recording in the right channel throughout.

The recording on reel 1, side 2 is 4 minutes long and was made to test equipment; it is unrelated to the lecture on side 1. Reel 2 also contains 16 minutes of an unrelated recording.
