Text of original announcement bulletin:

Hal McGee presents:
Dictaphonia Fest
Saturday, November 7, 2009
7:00 PM
The Laboratory
818 W. University Ave., Suite C
Gainesville, Florida
$5.00 admission

A showcase of microcassette experimental audio art
featuring performances by participants in the Dictaphonia Microcassette Compilation Project.

Performers must use microcassette in some way in their performance and it must be a prominent part of the sound.

There will be a 9-minute time limit on performances and performers will only be allowed to use minimal gear,
with a plug and play aesthetic and quick gear setups and breakdowns.

Performers will play through a small mixer and two 10-watt guitar amplifiers provided by me.

Keywords: lo-fi, lo-tech, minimalism, conceptual audio art, DIY, homemade experimental music
