“Noise is other peoples music” – Salome Voegelin, Listening to Noise and Silence: Towards a Philosophy of Sound Art.

I took this and…well basically stole someone else’s music!
Trawling through old tapes at my parents house I found a stock tape with scrawled writing on it reading “Richard Claydernman”. I then looked up the album cover and despite having no particular anathema toward the content with an album cover like this…who could not!

I basically distorted the tape any way I could without overtly crumpling the tape, degrading the protective layer OR altering with magnets…Also there are no digital alterations or distortion through re recording and such…because as much as that would make the project sound more to my liking…it goes against my intention which is analogue rah rah, yeah you get the picture. and basically because i’ve done that before and I wanted to experiment with something I have not..
I’ll upload process photo’s when I can figure out an easier way to do so…

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..

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.
