Mark Vernon – Magneto Mori: Kilfinane C44
On this cassette sounds from Kilfinane’s past and present intermingle in a stew of dissected audio tape. Cut into fragments, partially erased by magnets and then buried in a hole in the ground – after several days steeped in the earth of Kilfinane the remaining audio snippets were exhumed, washed and dried, spliced back together and played as part of a special listening event; a ritual of memory and forgetting. Presented here are the sounds that endured.
Released on Italian label, Canti Magnetici in a limited edition of 100 blue cassettes. Package includes a fragment of the original quarter inch tape.
