026/100 - "Sleeping Tapes" by Jeff Bridges
Jeff Bridges is one of my favourite artists. He is an accomplished actor and photographer. He also holds a place in my heart with his album "Sleeping Tapes" where he explores spoken word infused ambient music.
Now this idea may make you convulse in horror ... Bridges even hums on one track ... but it isn't as bad as you would think. It actually makes for compelling listening.
Between Bridges’ monologues and the field recordings he intersperses his soundscapes with, I found the presentation to be compelling: I hang on Bridges' every word.
Yes ... "Sleeping Tapes" is weird but that's the point.
Why only 100 words?
