Recorded for Hal McGee’s Museum of Microcassette Art, long may it hiss.
Photographs and all microcassettery by Andrew Chadwick.
Recorded with a Realistic Micro-18 microcassette recorder.
“Chadwick is one of the true masters of microcassette audio art, and on “Micromysteries” he takes it all to a new level, and has created his greatest work yet. Highly intimate and personal (you’re right THERE with Andrew), yet abstract, funny, mundane, and much more, “Micromysteries” is an investigation into the mechanics, the physicality of the microcassette medium itself, as a tool for re-constructing reality via pause button edits of time, fragmented, spliced, diced, rewound and fast forwarded into a microreality that defies linear reality, and explodes notions of past and future into one NOW. I won’t give it all away by describing in advance this smorgasbord of audio delights. This IS the sound of microcassette, and I am now intimately familiar with the unique humming tone of Andrew Chadwick’s microcassette recorder in the spaces between fragments.”
