Tape An electro-kinetic sound installation.
A continuous quarter inch tape loop rotates around in an
assemblage of appropriated and hand built electro-mechanical analogue parts. These are placed in a circular arrangement on an A1 sized metal and acrylic panel, aesthetically resembling finished polished metalwork.

The tape loop runs in a single direction through a hand built capstan and pinch roller mechanism and strategically-placed spools around the panel.

A slider switch controls recording intervals onto the tape from a microphone fixed on the panel, and a second slider is located between two of the reels. This unit incorporates the analogue tape playhead. This allows 'scratching' of the recording on the tape as it is moved from side to side.
