Analogue Tape Glove v1

YouTube via SignaltoNoiseVideo
"This interactive sound installation deals with exploring the physical connection between people and technology. A tangible user interface, taking the form of a glove is worn by the participant as they are invited to interact with an analogue tape surface. As the glove comes in contact with the tape, sound is generated and can be manipulated via touch and movement. This piece intends to explore the somewhat obsolete medium of tape through a playful and sonically interesting experience, appealing to a wide audience. the pre-recorded sound on the tape is a random collage of compiled material including a range of musical styles & found recordings.
This piece is informed by works such as Nam June Paiks Random Access Music and Stockhausens Tape experimentations as well as the notion of using analogue tape as an instrument.

  1. Did it not occur to anyone to run their hands across the tape surface, rather than just going with the grain of the tape?
