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.
As an artist I create works in various formats, but most often it involves sound and found objects.
