Found Tapes 2007

About EclectikTronik Found Tapes
The archive, (started in 1985), consists of strangers’ home recordings made via microphone onto tapes found dumped in skips and bins, or left in tape machines found at car boot, attic and jumble sales. These are generally unique one-off recordings, ranging from the banal to the disturbing. A certain enigmatic appeal stems from their not being intended for playback by an ‘audience’; the circumstances of their discovery and acquisition lend them a certain fragility, having been ‘saved’ from being lost forever. They are a unique way of viewing a moment, time or place.
