Songs for an Art History Major

Note from Mr P: Hello, art history major Stacy! Art History was one-fourth of my interdisciplinary major, so I jumped at the chance to make this mix. I was a little heavy on Fluxus stuff, but given its connections with modern composition and minimalism, it was a natural choice. In addition to the visual/performance artists who recorded music, I tried to include more current musicians who either do visual art or are related to visual arts in some way. I intentionally avoided songs that merely reference art periods/movements/etc. Thus, this is all 20th century and beyond, with artists and musicians who align with me aesthetically and politically rather than trying to be comprehensive in any sort of way. Love you!

Side A: Songs to make time go faster. Side B: Songs to make time go slower.

note from egads: So the request was songs that make time go faster/slower. Faster seems easy, I just put in some of my favourite party tunes, thinking that "time flies when you are having fun". But slower is kind of ambiguous. I could have either put the most depressing music, the worst music, music that is beautiful and ambient or chill and relaxing. I went with the latter two, I hope it works out.

Songs to either encourage or discourage me from packing up and moving abroad.

note from whatyousaygoes: This isn't a lot, but take a look at them; maybe it'll stop you from "packing up and moving abroad." Or, if you take these lyrics rather cynically and pessimistically, they might actually cause you to leave as well
