Regine has a write up of a couple projects presented at the Mobile Music Workshop – I really like Audiobombing project…

Audio Bombing… uses magnetic audio tape as its medium. Here’s how the system should work: after having recorded on a cassette any information you want, you remove the tape and cut out the segments to be used. Then take your tape segments and go tag whatever you want in urban space. You can listen to the tag by running an augmented playhead spray over the magnetic tape.

    Lets get this straight, while this is quite interesting, it’s hardly graffiti. Graffiti is something passersby can appreciate without the aid of special tools. How many people do we know walk around with an “augmented spray can” (without which this idea would be rendered useless)? I say, reclassify this as “Audio art” or something to that effect, but not Graffiti. :)

    This seems to be inspired by Laurie Anderson’s tape-bow violin. She replaced the hair on a violin bow with a strip of audio tape, and placed a playback head in the violin’s bridge. Then as she played the violin, the recording on the tape would play back (forward, backward, fast, slow). Fascinating to see.
