Tape Music∞: Sabot School

This documentary includes a discussion of Tape Music∞, clips from my work with the students at the Sabot Point School in Richmond, drawings they made in response to the piece, and the premiere performance at the 2013 Third Practice Festival on 11/2/13 at the University of Richmond. The piece can be performed by any number of participants plus stereo electronic playback made from processing of recordings of myself ripping, snapping, and otherwise manipulating a variety of tapes and a cardboard box. As you will see, the materials needed are minimal: a couple of rolls of tape, one of which is on a dispenser with teeth; a blunt pencil or similar object; a towel to put them on. The end of the video includes the most wonderful thank you note I have ever received: a piece called Everyday Music inspired by my work with the students, who formed their band Skool Supplies to perform it.
