Sound Recording
Place of publication, production, or execution:
No place, unknown, or undetermined
Physical Description:
2 sound tape reels : analog ; 7 in. ; 1 hr., 4 min., 4 sec.
An unidentified speaker compares how different languages express thoughts differently, to help explain the way that abstract modern art expresses thoughts differently than, say, realist art.
Reel 1 contains two overlapping recordings, recorded at different speeds. The recording on side 1 could not be isolated, and contains noise from a second recording in the right channel throughout.
The recording on reel 1, side 2 is 4 minutes long and was made to test equipment; it is unrelated to the lecture on side 1. Reel 2 also contains 16 minutes of an unrelated recording.
