Mix Tape

home music installation Media To Come has been dualplover

An installation of accessible audio tape.

Video: Mix Tape & Gigloo: White Cliffs, Outback NSW 090912

Mix Tape provides its visitors with tactile playback of a sculptural mass of audiotape attached to helium balloons. These balloons, with tape tied to each like a ribbon are filled with helium and released into the ceiling, leaving the tape to unspool as their cassette anchors them to the floor. This forest of exposed audio-tape then provides the raw material for an interactive mash up as participants run the magnetic strips across exposed playback heads mounted to play-stations!
