This collective of artists in Iowa City turn plagiarism into an art form. Their music is comprised entirely of found sounds and sound bytes. In their own words:"We got together in 1986 to pursue what we thought of as a new form of audio production: using the principle that anything that could be put on tape had potential musical usefulness. We felt that audio tape was a medium that had not been thoroughly explored artistically, and we wanted to do that in a sort of pop music context. We were, for the most part visual artists dabbling in what was for us a new medium. We wanted a fresh, lively sound and we wanted real content that everyone could relate to."
