Background: a friend very kindly sent me a damaged microcassette he found by the roadside in the suburbs of Agia Paraskevi (Greece). Just over three minutes of audio was discovered: beeps from an answering machine, messages, plenty of background noise and snippets of background music. Lots of great raw audio to work with!
For this call out I invite you to use the found audio from the microcassette and do anything you like to it! The more experimental and creative the better!!
If I receive enough submissions the plan is to release it on my label Quagga Curious Sounds, either as a CDr or audio cassette. All contributors would receive a complimentary copy or two if this happens.
If you have a SoundCloud account you can download it:
Or request it via email: mike-ridge[AT]hotmail.co.uk with the subject line MCASS CALL OUT, I’ll send it to you via WeTransfer.
Maximum track duration per contributor: 5 minutes please!
Deadline: 31 January 2019 (this can be extended if need be)
Track Format: WAV
Any questions etc. do ask on here or send an email.
Firstly, a HUGE thanks for those that participated in the EC Mail Art Exchange project, I thoroughly enjoyed receiving such wonderful and inspiring pieces (visually and sonically!).
I’ve dabbled in Mail Art on and off for a few years now, the act of physically making, writing and dispatching a postcard/letter/object to a friend or fellow artist on the other side of the world is always a rewarding experience. Not forgetting, the delight of arriving back home and discovering mail art goodies stuffed in your letterbox!
As an artist I create works in various formats, but most often it involves sound and found objects.
