A huge mixtape of history

 'KALEIDOSCOPE: A moment Of Grace' is Modern Art Oxford’s series of evolving exhibitions to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Part if this exhibition is a sound installation, containing approximately 4000 cassette tapes from family, friends, record stores and the Internet. Ranging from commercially sold audiobooks, popular music, independent labels, mixtapes, and home recordings, they have been cut and spliced together to create 52 reels, holding approximately 40 hours of sound and music each. These reels exist as mixes, combinations of various sounds by a number of authors that play constantly during the museum’s opening hours, corresponding to a cycle of human consistency. The work hinges on the presence of a listener yet the exhibition itself represents only a partial span of its length with the same sound never played twice.

The resulting cutouts can be used to assemble casting molds or they can stand alone as  sound sculptures.
