Collection of Ephemera Related to The Electric Element

np: [1973]. A cache of 10 items produced in conjunction with the Electric Element, a multi-media performance which was performed at the Theatre Royal Stratford in 1973 by the avant-garde theatrical performance troupe, which included the legendary musican and cybernetic artist Bruce Lacey, who appeared in Jasia Reichardt's Cybernetic Serendipity catalog.

Includes a handbill for the show printed in color, a printed sheet with instructions for how to fold it into a "paper dart", 5 foolscap "data sheets" printed on both recto and verso with biographical notes and notes on set and performances, a map of Captain Trelawney's Island [12 x 17", with map printed on recto, and with the captain's diary printed at verso, and last but certainly not least, a sheet of yellow paper, printed in blue, which features a "Space Game" designed by Jill Bruce at recto, and, remarkably, a "Speech Spectrometer Printout" of a voice saying "The Electric Element", which was made at the Theoretical Psychology Unit at the School of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh by David Jeffrey, and which bears more than a passing resemblance to the cover of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures, which woudl be released six years later.

Materials have some folds and light creasing, but are clean and very good or better. Item #27679
