New release from Graham Dunning on Modisti

Sound Artist Graham Dunning (UK) has a new album released on the Modisti Net Label.

Graham Dunning – Tape Ghosts

This recording is a stereo mixdown of the three channel
sound element of an installation “Untitled” (2010) by artist Graham
. The recording is a composed collection of sounds from
discarded reel-to-reel tapes dating from the 1950s to the 1970s:
people singing nursery rhymes and popular songs alongside hiss, hum
and crackle from the analogue recording process. The installation
features three tape machines paying these disembodied sounds calling
into question the function of archiving and the relationships between
sound, memory, loss and nostalgia. “Untitled” was first exhibited in
April 2010 at “Lost Language” at Kraak gallery in Manchester, UK, and
most recently at “Time Pieces” at the Peter Scott Gallery at Lancaster
Institute for the Contemporary Arts in March 2011.
