A poster for a "benefit concert and dance party" held forty years ago today, in aid of Volume, the international catalogue and directory of audio work in the arts.
The event was hosted by One Ten Records, the short-lived NYC-based label ran by visual artist and archivist Bob George, from the late seventies into the early eighties. One Ten released Laurie Anderson's debut single Oh Superman, Jackie Apple's Mexican Tapes, and the 1977 Airwaves compilation (which featured Anderson, Apple, as well as Vito Acconci, Terry Fox, Meredith Monk, Dennis Oppenheim, etc.).
Anderson performed on the bill with Peter Gordon's Love of Life Orchestra (Gordon was a frequent collaborator of Anderson's, as well as Suzanne Vega, David Johansen, The Flying Lizards, David Van Tieghem, Lawrence Weiner, and Arthur Russell) and Glenn Branca.
