"Cut-Off" is part of "Black Box Music" series. Although recordings were made in 1998 they are now fully published for the first time. What's hidden in black box this time? Three compositions were prepared with two cassette recorders, scissors and self stick tape - they are fully handmade without any computer or digital interventions. Deconstructions were base for creating collages similar to classic plunderphonic compositions from John Oswald's "Plunderphonics".
