About

A superabundance of useless information effectively subdues freedom of speech. Condense and survive! RADIO ADIOS is a monologue in 12 plaited strands; an extremely precise, condensed and intensely rhythmic Busby Berkeleyish spectacle of an examination of conversational and literary language over a fair range of vocal timbre, microphones, volume settings and single-system sync peculiarities and its dissolution into music to the accompaniment of simultaneous Manhattan ambiences punctuated by fragments of jazz ... personalized handheld camera movement, movement from cut to cut – juxtapositions of scale, pulsating changes in light intensity, a varying palette of various filmstocks, generations, etc., at an appropriately furious pace and in strict one-track sync ... offering simultaneously several levels of apprehension or interpretation to encourage multiple viewings. Text published in O. ARS/3: Translations (Cambridge, 1983). Brakhage says it's real.
