  SSCD_6.2 (2009)  
 

 
     

A six-channel cassette-delay system designed for live performance. Constantly recording, it reproduces, distresses, disperses and decays all the sounds played into it, this contant feedback conjuring room tones from nothing. Performance becomes a dialogue between its unflinching repetition and my own attempts to control it.

The video linked below documents a performance in York using a contact microphone to amplify the machine itself and a dynamic microphone placed inside a hollow glass lamp-base.
