Mix Tape


MIX TAPE is both a curated exhibition of individual sound works and an interactive sound installation allowing tactile playback of the exhibited sound presented as a sculptural mass of audiotape. For it’s exhibition musicians and sound artists from Australia and internationally are invited to submit an audiocassette and a balloon.

These balloons will be filled with helium with the tape tied to each like a ribbon. When released the balloons will ascend to the ceiling and the tape will unspool from the cassettes, turning the room into a forrest of exposed audio tape that will provide the raw material for an interactive mash up of all the works. Visitors to the gallery will then be able to play sections of tape by manually running it across exposed playback heads mounted onto custom built plinths situated throughout the gallery.
