‘Talk Book’ 3.5″ Recycled Floppy Disk

Scan of all Four Floppy Disks

“Talk Book” is the result of experimentation with my trusty Sanyo Talk Book Microcassette Recorder and contact microphone. Comprising of two distinctly lo-fi field recordings both of which clock in at under a minute in length. Track one is the rattle and banging from a large metal gate near our house, the second is several layered recordings of overworked fridge motors.  Included on the disk is a text file and digital photograph from the recording session at the metal gate.

Near to where track one was documented a wanted poster was discovered for two known shoplifters from the Norwich area; the grainy poster was cut up and utilised as labels for the disks. To reflect the lo-fi compressed quality of the recordings a crude black and white collage was created and printed onto lurid pink card.

Strictly limited to four copies!
