Memoryphones

Title: Memoryphones
Materials: headphones, hand-knitting yarn spun by Rachael Matthews at Analogue Amnesty event (contains cassette tape), recording (spoken word)

Concept: Memoryphones was an exploration of sonic memory, and a deliberate combination of form with content. The yarn which the headphones are covered in contains the cassette which the spoken word recording refers to. Listeners can put on the headphones, and then as the narrative unfolds, they realise that the tape which I am talking about is spun into the very yarn touching their ears.
