LAFMS on the cover of the LA Times!

The Tuesday, January 31 edition of the LA Times Calendar section featured a photo of the Pyramid Headphones installation at the Welcome Inn Time Machine produced by SASSAS for the closing of the Performance and Public Art Festival of Pacific Standard Time.

Here is a scan of the newspaper (provided by Dennis Duck).  You can see Joe Potts on the right speaking with a visitor.

According to Potts, the twelve extant headphones have not been used in the public since their original use in 1976 as part of the Brand Library performance.  Prerecorded sounds supplied by Le Forte Four were piped into the homemade cardboard headphones.
