Party Lab Archive

From August 5–September 10, Pioneer Books will be host to the Party Lab Archive, a collection of over 300 cassette tapes from artists Joe Ahearn, James Clark and G. Lucas Crane that document nearly every performance at DIY space Silent Barn from 2009-2011. Free and open to the public, the archive is a place to listen and meditate upon spaces of cultural production heard holistically via the musical performances, the sound of the venue coming to life each evening, and the medium in which all of it is archived.

These tapes are going to be digitized in the order of which tapes people want to hear the most. Visit the Party Lab Archive Tumblr to vote.
