Institut Francais de Marrakech

Created during a residency in Marrakech, Morocco, in March and April 2014. The residency explored collections and archives of music, issues of recording techniques, post colonial hoo-ha and folklorization;  the starting point was the recordings Paul Bowles made in Morocco in the 1950s. More information is HERE. My installation focused on early recording techniques and 78rpm records (what a surprise) through video and audio.

“…if a new technology extends one or more of our senses outside of us into the social world then new ratios among all our senses will occur like adding a new note to a melody…” (Marshall McLuhan, The Medium is the Message)
