[free music friday: Tony Conrad, Edley ODowd, and Genesis Breyer P. Orridge live on WFMU]

DOWNLOAD: Tony Conrad, Edley ODowd, and Genesis Breyer P. Orrdige live on WFMU’s Strength Through Failure

Well here is something pretty weird. A live collaboration between Tony Conrad, Distinguished Professor at SUNY Buffalo’s Department of Media Studies (and minimalism pioneer), and Psychic TV/Throbbing Gristle member Genesis Breyer P. Orridge.

The set, which also includes Edley ODowd, was recorded back in April 2010 on WFMU’s strength Through Failure show. Over the course of three tracks this trio improvises their way into some rather strange sonic places.

Thanks to WFMU and the Free Music Archive for making it available.
