A wall mounted work comprised of around 2500 cassettes donated to the gallery
by local people. Arranged in a colour coded order the cassettes become a wall
of colour and are only suggestive of sound.
There is no amplification for the music contained within as the work merely implicates
sound in the memory of the viewer. By employing cassettes as the medium, the work
returns to a medium that has been hopelessly erased from the market by the advent
of a digital economy, but one that still resonates with associations a
homage to a sound technology of the past.
