Lost Sound | Chicago Reader

Lost Sound

Made in collaboration with sound artist Graeme Miller, this 2001 experimental video shows discarded audiotapes around London—strands clinging to a fence, trapped in the crevices of a tree trunk, intertwined with weeds. The sound track combines the voices and songs on these found tapes with ambient sounds recorded on location. Visually the tapes tell us almost nothing; they must be decoded electronically. But the signs, cars, and pedestrians on-screen pose similar decoding problems: what do they mean, where do they come from, who or what are they? A city that at first seems comprehensible is revealed as a layering of mysteries. 28 min.
