2004.Tape Music (mono) – introduction


“Tape Music”

Inspired by futurists’ soirées, J.J.Lebel’s Polyphonix and Taoist Chantings, Linchiwei’s “Tape Music” mimic the mechanical reading process of the magnetic tape with scrolls of musical scores embroidered upon it.The long “Tape” is transmitted to the participants, who may improvise the recitation spontaneously, Albeit without a conductor or any rehearsals, an elaborate choir was orchestrated, from which an ever-evolving harmonic sound is gradually shaped.
