Audio Palimpsests

6-minute looping cassette, audio recorded from live performances, ongoing series

The works in this series are created by manipulating in my live performances a cassette player and a TDK EC-6M 6 minute looping cassette tape. The cassette player is used during the performance to create feedback by indiscriminately pressing the player’s controls (record, stop, forward, rewind).

Each work is a six minute recombinant document of numerous live performances over the past several years where I recorded, re-recorded, and erased the sounds of audio tape feedback, myself and other musicians.

And if I live a thousand lives I hope to remember one, commissioned by Evening Will Come: A Monthly Journal of Poetics. The Art of Losing – Issue 58, October 2015. Curated by John Melillo and Johanna Skibsrud.
