This piece is called "Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here'".

It is the digital recording of a cassette tape of Pink Floyd's album "Wish You Were Here" (1975). The cassette belonged to my father, and we used to listen to it a lot in the 70's when I was a kid living in Burkina Faso. I found the tape a couple of years ago, and noticed that, for some reason, someone had stuck some masking tape on it, in order to record over the music. Therefore, the original sound of the tape is regularly cut-up, leaving places with accidental audio recordings, random sounds from a school party with children playing in the background, african music played on a sound system, and someone making announcements on the microphone.

I only digitalized Side One of the tape.

Pink Floyd's tracks played on this recording are:

a) SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMONDS, parts 1 to 5

b) WELCOME TO THE MACHINE
