PERFORATION FUNCTION – AUDIO MAIL ART PROJECT

REVISIT THE PERFORATION FUNCTION FOR IT IS SUCH A SAD SIGHT TO SEE BE SATISFIED YOU’RE WATERTIGHT IF NOT MAKE MOVES TO BE SO

 

 

‘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 IN THE NO AUDIENCE UNDERGROUND SCENE. 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. ANY RESPONSE TO THE CASSETTE WAS INVITED BUT AS A SUGGESTION, THE PACKAGE FROM DAVID INCLUDED SELLOTAPE TO FIX UP THE TAPE AND A MATCH FOR DESTROYING THE ARTIFACT COMPLETLEY IF PREFERRED.

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

A SERIES OF COLLAGE DRAWINGS AND IMPROVISED PROSE WERE ALSO CREATED TO ACCOMMPANY THE MUSIC

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