June 18th, 2010 – Signal to Noise has created something they’re calling the Analogue Tape Wall which is a traveling installation. It consists of a glove that users can use to stroke over a wall of analogue tape. The glove contains a tape head on the finger tip which allows the tape to be played. In the video embedded below, it seems like the collection of tape doesn’t have much to do with each other in a specific arrangement.
Imagine if it was segmented into specific areas and samples, so that it was an analogue sampler played with the fingers. That would be so cool! Hmm…if I was more industrious, I’d try to make my own. Each “picture” would be a different song that I could play. Too bad I lack the skills or motivation to make one. Signal to Noise is onto something very cool.
