Negativland, the band and audio art collective, will bring their latest show
to the Middle East Downstairs on Wednesday, August 1, 2007 from 9 - 11pm and
WMBR Radio will broadcast the show live over 88.1 FM and www.wmbr.org
<http://www.wmbr.org/> .


Details about the show from


"Negativland's "crusading" IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD FM show is an effort to
bring our 25-years-on-the-air Over The Edge radio show to the live stage for
the first time.   No puppets, no film projectors, no bells and whistles...
just "theater of the mind"... the creation of a live radio program with a
studio audience!  "It's All In Your Head FM" is a densely-layered
examination of monotheism in all its worldwide forms, as hosted by the
venerable Dr. Oslo Norway."


Since 1980, Negativland have been creating records, fine art, video, books,
radio and live performance using appropriated sound, image and text. Mixing
original materials and music with things taken from corporately owned mass
culture, Negativland re-arranges these bits and pieces to make them say and
suggest things that they never intended to. In doing this kind of cultural
opposition and "culture jamming" (a term coined by Negativland in 1984),
Negativland was sued twice for copyright infringement in the early 90's and
won both cases!



That's WMBR, Cambridge 88.1 FM and www.wmbr.org <http://www.wmbr.org/>
