Giant casette tape


Roy Mohan Shearer writes:

Musician, furniture maker, director and general polymath Jonnie Common decided that we needed a x15 scale cassette tape for the ‘Pherenzik Tear’ promo video by Inspector Tapehead (in which we both play along with Chris Croasdale). So we set about making one, together. We knew the spools would have to turn so I hacked a couple of Walkmans leftover from the Tapehead Inspector project as a drive mechanism. ‘How authentic!’ you might say, except the resulting rotation was curiously much faster than that of a walkman. Oh well.
