“Has the Government Ever Done This to a Paper Before?” (R. Nixon)

1970. Nixon. Mitchell. Kissinger. And the obscured presence of a fourth person, a listener, a faint audio artifact that appears only as metadata, a sonic artifact that suggests Kissinger’s secret taping of the taping. The “orderly government” of which he speaks–something far beyond the so-called deep state–could only exist, of course, against a backdrop of disorder. Although this audio exists in various iterations, Lost Signals is in possession of the only known 0001 copy, the one that preserves the tonal erasures original to the recording.–E. Edgewood
