Fanfic Telepresence by Sculpture, August 2020
Fanfic Telepresence is a 20 minute documentary configuration of everyday cornucopia, tapes and synthesizer gnarl, conversational fragments, observations, juxtapositions, sensory punchlines, redirected energy, pattern, speculation.
We made this for Channel9319062‘s DREAM APPOLCALYPSE, streamed live 8 September 2020. What you see changes what you hear and what you hear changes what you see. Structure, harmony and discord come and go. It’s a (time) travelogue made in lockdown. Objects and situations lose their original meaning and communicate something else. The music is electromechanical. The pause control of a Uher 4000 tape recorder (Education Authority Unit) sees heavy action. Entities transmit by telepresence, inhabit places, objects and organisms, impersonate themselves.

Found tape. Cut at random from the pile on studio floor. Playback on mono 1/2 track tape deck reveals a beautiful simultaneity.
Sculpture: Slime Code
Slime Code is an exotic particle soup of pause button tape edits, varispeed action, VU busting tape saturation, freakform noise, grazing tape loop critters, and electronic rhythms.
The music was performed live to 8 track tape by Dan Hayhurst and Reuben Sutherland on 1st July 2011.
7 unique dubs to C20 compact cassette were executed by DH, and a digital edit was compiled from the C20s on August 6th 2011.
The 7 unique C20s and free unlimited digital manifestation will be available through Kaleidoscope from Valentine’s Day.
