  In Search of a Concrete Music (2010)  
 


A Grundig TK18 reel to reel tape recorder was dismantled down to its individual component parts. Each piece was then laid on the bed of a scanner produding a real exploded diagram of the contents of the machine. The title is the common English translation of electronic music pioneer Pierre Schaeffer's essay A la Recherche d'une Musique Concréte, perhaps this is a more concrete means of searching for that music.
