Tape Ghosts (28:17)

From Tape Ghosts

This recording is a stereo mixdown of the three channel sound element of an installation “Untitled” (2010) by artist Graham Dunning. The recording is a composed collection of sounds from discarded reel-to-reel tapes dating from the 1950s to the 1970s: people singing nursery rhymes and popular songs alongside hiss, hum
and crackle from the analogue recording process. The installation features three tape machines paying these disembodied sounds, calling into question the function of archiving and the relationships between

sound, memory, loss and nostalgia. “Untitled” was first exhibited in April 2010 at “Lost Language” at Kraak gallery in Manchester, UK, and most recently at “Time Pieces” at the Peter Scott Gallery at Lancaster
Institute for the Contemporary Arts in March 2011.
