Fluxus Anthology - Various [2001]

Fluxus is...
  • attitude; not movement or style.
  • intermedia: what happens when different media intersect; how found and everyday objects, sounds, images, and texts mix to create new combinations of objects, sounds, images, and texts.
  • simple: small scale, short texts, brief performances.
  • fun.
In other words, carte blanche for pissing about. Quite literally in La Ono's case. Y brawd invites you the listener to sort vacuous piffle from the really rather good. Let it flow.
