DECAY [dih-key] : decomposition; rot; a gradual falling into an inferior condition; progressive decline
Created for the month long B.A.S.S. sonic arts event at Framewerk gallery in Belfast, “a short history of decay (part 1)” comprises of sonic and visual elements, an exploration of signal degradation through excessive reproduction, copying, looping and distortion.
The cassette features two sound pieces based on field recordings captured on a cheap portable tape recorder. Theses tapes were submitted to a series of processes and further combined with analog synthesizer and signal chain feedback loops
The booklet contains elements of photographs and drawings recycled by cropping, enlarging and further recopying on an ageing xerox machine which introduced numerous unintentional distortions.
Includes unlimited streaming of a short history of decay (part 1)
