3 Corner Tellus was a live collaborative remix between Harvestworks, New York, send+receive, Winnipeg and Kunstradio, Vienna. The double vinyl and online project “Tellus Tools” released by the Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, NYC, was functioning as basic material for this live webcast.’

David Grubbs edited this mix from Harvestworks, NY, the Tellus headquarters. It was then aired on austrian KunstRadio along parallel inputs from Winnipeg and Vienna. Here’s the New York mix on its own. I’m not sure Grubbs is actually mixing from the TellusTools 2LPs. I’d say he’s providing a mix on behalf of the Tellus team, not necessarily samples from the 2LP set. Grubbs starts with some actual birdcalls – an homage to those of Louise Lawler, I guess. Beautiful unidentified solo guitar part start at 14:30. All in all, a rather minimalistic approach to mixing is on evidence here, which I find quite pleasant to listen to.
