Is Music Killing Home Taping? (Detail), 2008

This is a recording of a segment from an installation piece I created for Toadball.TV, commissioned by Grizedale Arts for their installation at GSK Contemporary the Royal Academy of Arts in 2008.

The piece is continuous random selection of musical segments played together and overlaid to the full capacity the computer running a piece of software, which creates the random mix of sounds; a soundclash.

The installation piece ran for the duration of the show from 31st October 2008 to the 19th January 2009, and this recording represents 1 hours and 35 minutes of the piece. This is longer than any one person is expected to listen to the piece for, but long enough to demonstrate the development of audio textures and repetitions created by the random overlaying.
