Tape Music



Tape Music invites the audience to respond to/interact with/interpret a 120 meter long tape with embroidered phonetic characters without further instruction. Born from the desire to play electronic music through human bodies and interactivities, it has been performed internationally in different contexts – schools, community groups, universities, galleries.
