Fiver's Stereo and Hal McGee
We Both Lose
microcassette audio art collaboration
June 2015

Fiver's Stereo (Jay Peele) recorded a 30-minute microcassette consisting of various sounds and mailed it to Hal McGee. McGee also recorded a MC30. Without listening to the Fiver's tape first McGee improvised a mix of the two microcassettes.

Drawings and other artwork by Peele; cover layout collage by McGee.
