Tape Music Session

Here’s my take on Tape Music! I took packing tape, masking tape, binding tape, scotch tape, you-name-it-tape, and brought it to The Sound Studio in Charlottesville, where mic expert and composer Scott Barton assisted with the session, as did The Sound’s own Mark Graham. We used a bunch of mics, including Telefunken, Beyer and KSM, and  I had a great time making the first installment of the piece, called Tape Music, for Surround-Sound 5.1. Finished it up while serving as a Master Artist at the Atlantic Center for the Arts. Now working on a version, Tape Music For You, for participants plus electronics, with both set to premiere at the Third Practice Festival in Richmond, VA on 11/2/13.
