loop / distort
A series of experiments using cassette tape loops
Cassette tape loops containing short extracts of found sound (either the existing audio from an audiobook or sound recorded from the radio). The loops have then been distorted through scratching, splicing and painting - exploiting the analogue nature of tape.
