Two One of a Kind samples from an analog source, a cassette tape recording of the author Umberto Eco lecturing at Stanford University in 1987 on the subject of “Fakes and Originals”. The cassette tape was digitized and is emitted in full length as an mp3. On side A of the tape recording, a sample of drumming was added and looped for the duration and on side B a guitar sample was added and looped. As a digital file, the recording is heard continuously as there are no physical sides. The shift from drums to guitar, signify the change in sides of the cassette, but the lecture continues uninterrupted. The accompanying poster appropriates from an ad for Jim Beam bourbon that features the actor Sean Connery who resembles Umberto Eco.
