Flying Records (6 recorders ver.) [installation / performance]
The work is an ensemble of six analog recorders with reel-to-reel magnetic tapes. A helium balloon is attached at the beginning or end of the tape—depending on the direction of play. All tapes are pre-recorded with different sounds. Once the tape is playing, the balloon rises on its own; rewinding the tape hauls the balloon back down, and the minimalist ascent-descent game can start again. The simultaneous action of the six tape recorders thus gives rise to meditative-hypnotic interplay of sounds and visual elements.
