Following in the tracks of our model pre-digital “augmented” book, McLuhan/Agel/Fiore’s 1967 The Medium is the Massage, Adam Michaels and I are beginning to cook up a vinyl LP project that will consist in a remix of The Electric Information Age Book. The idea is to work up a ludic soundtrack for our print excavation of a moment from the e-Book’s prehistory that riffs off of Agel’s own quirky Columbia Records project, marketed as THE FIRST SPOKEN ARTS RECORD YOU CAN DANCE TO.

If you aren’t familiar with this curio from the late 1960’s, you’ll find an online copy at Ubu web.
