A sound installation for numerous factory-second cassette dictaphones. The mechanics and audio electronics of these machines have been subtly transformed - their simple motion, voltage and operative noise are combined into a visual and aural display reminiscent of the massed migrations of birds or insects.

About

A sound installation for numerous factory-second cassette dictaphones. The mechanics and audio electronics of these machines have been subtly transformed - their simple motion, voltage and operative noise are combined into a visual and aural display reminiscent of the massed migrations of birds or insects. Obliquely referencing the appropriation of the term 'Migration' as a data process the work reflects on the global movement of consumer electronics as they pass from production to pollution in the ever accelerating life cycles between generations of technology.

 

Stephen Cornford (b.1979) is a British sound-artist, sculptor, and performer of experimental electronic music. His work stems from an abiding fascination with consumer audio electronics: how these devices that we are sold to consume music and images increasingly frame our engagement with the audio-visual world at large.
