PERFORATION FUNCTION – AUDIO MAIL ART PROJECT

PERFORATION FUNCTION IS A 30 MIN SOUND COLLAGE WHICH FORMS THE BASIS OF A RESPONSE TO A MAIL ART INVITATION FROM DAVID HOWCROFT, A PROMINENT PLAYER OF THE NO AUDIENCE UNDERGROUND. THE PIECE OF MUSIC IS BASED AROUND SAMPLES OF THE NURSE WITH WOUND LIVE SET FROM LAST YEARS TUSK FESTIVAL IN GATESHEAD THAT WAS SENT TO ME BY DAVID ON A DISMANTLED AND HALF-DESTROYED CASSETTE TAPE. A RESPONSE TO THE CASSETTE WAS INVITED AND AS A SUGGESTION, THE PACKAGE FROM DAVID INCLUDED SELLOTAPE TO FIX UP THE TAPE AND A MATCH FOR DESTROYING THE ARTIFACT COMPLETELY IF PREFERRED.

I CHOSE TO REPAIR THE TAPE AND USE IT TO CREATE AN AUDIO RESPONSE FOR THE PROJECT.

IT IS DAVID’S INTENTION TO TRY AND EXHIBIT THE VARIOUS WORKS CREATED THROUGH THIS PROJECT AT THIS TUSK FESTIVAL IN OCT ‘18
