back when i was part owner of an art gallery, i planned on a show
where i recorded sounds as a textural layer to a series of images.
the sounds were going to be dubbed from micro cassette recorder to a wire
recorder back to a cassette recorder. i had planned on running these sounds
as an endless loop, but i ran out of steam and eventually left the gallery.
i sold off the "vintage" sound recording devices ( wire recorder, and
recordaphone ) on eBoo, and regretted it afterwards

sounds like a fun project michel.
