about

Forget About Forgetting to Remember to Remember was a cassette I made at the end of middle school to document that period of my life.

I made numerous copies of the cassette to give away to my friends. Inspired by Daniel Johnston's early releases, the cassette was packaged in a soft polybox with artwork in black pen on white paper glued to the front, back and inside, each copied by a Xerox machine.

Due to concerns over copyright and privacy, this digital release has been abridged from the original fifty minute tape. The cassette release contained collages of audio recorded off my television, clips of conversation at my middle school, and recordings of my school's choir, including a performance that featured me on percussion.

While the audio is abridged, the transcript is presented here in full.
