"10-SECOND RECORDINGS"
back to projects page
This process emerged as a way to approach recording sound with "edges" similar to the way a photograph is made, or "framed." These pieces are recorded randomly from the TV and the composition of the piece is indeterminate. Subject matter ranges from popular sports programs, the Oscars, daytime TV, and the evening news.

Each recording is captured and contained in a ready-made black plastic digitally recording picture frame commercially available at Radio Shack. Digital recordings are infinitely reproducible, however, these pieces are one of a kind due to the fact that the information on the chip is not transferable. It can be recorded over, but there is no way to reproduce what is already there.
