Just a bit more information concerning Smith and Conrad. The site designated in the subject title above provides the following information:

The latest news from Table of the Elements is that we've given Tony Conrad his own label, an imprint of TotE titled Audio ArtKive. The first two releases are by the late filmmaker, photographer and performance artist Jack Smith: Les Evening Gowns DamnŽes and Silent Shadows on Cinemarok Island, both of which are culled from Tony's vast archival library. The material includes readings of short stories and other audio excursions (featuring spectacular lo-fi monaural backing by the likes of Tony, John Cale, Angus MacLise, Mario Montez and so forth), as well as excerpts from Conrad's soundtracks for Smith's films, most notably Flaming Creatures. Both discs are grouped under the heading "56 Ludlow Street 1962 - 1964," which was Tony's place where he roomed with Jack and later with John Cale, and where all of this material was recorded (Tony's Four Violins was created there as well).
