Tape Piece for a Large Room
Tape Piece For A Large Room
For four performers holding portable tape recorders (with inbuilt speakers).
Tapes (containing recordings of sine tones at different frequencies, etc.) can be supplied upon request.
Each performer begins in a different corner of the room.
At a given signal, all four performers press play on their tape deck and begin walking towards the centre of the room.
Upon encountering any obstacle – a chair, a person, etc. – turn around and plot a new course at a roughly forty-five degree angle from previous trajectory, then carry on walking.
When the tapes run silent, stop moving.
