24 Tapes is an installation by Future Baby and will be in residence at Drift until 27th July for you to come and experience in person.
They explain; 24 Tapes is a site-specific sound installation consisting of one tape player, one pair of headphones and 24 audio cassette tapes. Featuring recordings made in and around the location in collaboration with the people who live and work there, 24 Tapes functions like a little sonic gallery for one, a temporary archive of local experience.
The collection is growing daily so plenty to come back to. Some very funny anecdotes, some pretty powerful tones, found sounds and contributions from our buds Mr. Kit and Lecu. You can watch the process unfolding on their instagram here; www.instagram.com/futurebaby.collective
Future Baby is Jethro Cooke and Flora Dekkers. You can see more of their work online here;
As part of the take over, Lecu has contributed 20 minutes of new material and you can come and listen to that now. Here he is below, not listening to his own tape this week when he dropped off some exclusive pre-release copies of the new Mi Cosa de Resistance cassette on the Left Tapes label. "7 Songs to be Listened in Silence" is really special stuff, so hyped to have this in. You can stream it in full below or via the label Bandcamp.
