Sorry for the cross-postings. Please forward to all.

__ U B U W E B __

In coordination with Andrew Stafford, UbuWeb is pleased to present the complete contents
of issues 1-9 of Aspen Magazine. Apsen, a multimedia magazine of the arts was originally
published from 1957 to 1971. Each issue of Aspen was delivered to the subscribers in a
box, which contained a variety of media: printed matter in different formats, phonograph
recordings, and reels of Super-8 film. Stafford has remediated the contents for the web,
using RealAudio, QuickTime movies, Flash, MP3s, etc. Comprising nearly 400 artists,
UbuWeb's acquisition of Aspen Magazine increases UbuWeb's content base by almost a third.

The site contains a vast number of rare MP3s of Aspen's sound works including artists
such as Yoko Ono, Marcel Duchamp, Merce Cunningham, John Cage, The Velvet Underground,
William S. Burroughs, La Monte Young, etc.

The film section contains works by Robert Rauschenberg, Hans Richter, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy,
Robert Morris, and Stan VanDerBeek.

A complete index follows.
