So I was playing around with cassette tapes and magnets as my last post with the magnet hydrophone precipitated such. This then spurred different ways to try and get tapes to play and degrade etc etc… rah rah.

Anyway, while going through that, came across a how-to like post in sound and vision regarding this Marclay esq. record player with tape heads and tape and such. Reminded me somewhat of Bartholomäus Traubeck’s wood record things in conjunction with Lucas Abela and his record race track whatever-the-hell that was…and a few other artists i cant particularly be bothered remembering or finding the names of, they are the two i remember.. theres also an australian, sydney based i think…-then again she could be from NZ…- female artist who plays makeshift records and plays them showing analog technology being used to the extremities. A glitch based ethos I suppose… point? i’m not sure…

ANYWAY! point is i’m going to do something with this at the moment…

Bartholomäus Traubeck’s wooden record..

Lucas’  Vinyl Rally.

Two things from sound and vision ive tried before and never really found a tutorial thing……

I was researching the effects of feedback when microphones are internally inserted. Specifically  working with hydrophones I’m making(clearly). I was also trying to find out any other issues with that and generally if anyone had done this in the performance context I intend.. (i’ll probably be using this in my final performance thing so..i’ll get into all that later…enjoy that)…

…anyway, point was while I was doing that I found this which gave me vague, non linear, somewhat rhizomic ideas I’d like to remember at some point as I will forget. I’ve decided I might as well use this blog for this purpose… or… something… whatever…fine..good…I’m done now.

Wrote a performance earlier this year which included both homemade contact and electret microphone….ed(?) trombone run perhaps through some sort of bent pre amp or something along those lines… Despite that being somewhat of a punitive element to the work which rather revolved around the violence, blood and noise I could create with my body… I can’t help but feel somewhat out-shined…

Where Am I?
