'Taped Reality' is a sound art piece constructed using analogue cassette tapes, digital sound processing and a real-time video projection. In 'Taped Reality', the participant/listener faces sound as the dominant element of the surrounding setting. The artwork's compositional exploration encompasses analogue processing of recorded cassette tapes, digital manipulation, synthesised soundscapes and a real-time visual representation of the sounds produced.
Collated over a period of 10 months, from noisy city soundscapes, natural sounds to manipulated musical sequences, the sonic storyline creates a chaos of life, an auditory confusion, which becomes systemised in a form of digital spectroscopic blocks projected on a screen, and finally resolved in a form of a synthesised soundscape. The video screen showcases the frequencies and intensity of each sonic moment of the audio collage in real time, creating a unique live projection of sound. As a result, sound becomes the audible as well as the visual element of the piece.
