Triangular Tape Loop 10/2/13

A long triangular tape loop across one corner of the room and over some record sleeves laid out for drawing and collage. The reel-to-reel tape recorder has recorded the sound of itself through a hand-made contact mic', parts of the loop still contain some accidental noise from a previous recording. The recorded sound information on the tape is traveling around the room in a continuous cycle and the sound reproduced by the tape recorder is the sound of itself recording itself. The casing for the contact mic' is a bottle top but the connection to the beer bottles holding the tape up was not noticed at the time but is a nice touch. Loops, cycles, patterns, self-referencing and self producing sounds have been an important feature in my work for many years. Sounds coming soon. (And proper non-blurred photos.)
