Interruptions – Found Sound

A lot of the tapes I find/buy contain recorded music. That is music either recorded from the radio or direct from disc.

Often the real stars of the tape are hidden away – mostly towards the end or at the beginning of a tape.

More often these live recordings of people replace the music that’s already on the tape. Imagine uncle Jack settling down in the evening with his pipe and a whiskey to listen to some some relaxing jazz, when all of a sudden…

It happens the other way too. Someone’s long forgotten presentation on Eyes is rudely interrupted by music…

Then, of course, there’s the biggest interruption of them all. The tape runs out.
