Dates: All day Weds 31st Mar - 14th Apr
Home Tapes is a triptych of sonic theatre pieces by artists on the Erased Tapes label, reflecting on the concept of ‘home’.
Composer-saxophonist Daniel Thorne, multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick, and singer-songwriter Douglas Dare each conjure a distinctive space from the architecture of their musical practice, sketching details with storytelling and binaural sound design, and invite the listener into these private worlds. Written, performed and recorded under varying states of lockdown, the project aims to furnish a sense of shared place and rekindle a spirit of hospitality at a time of enforced alienation.
Home Tapes was commissioned by Soundworlds, in partnership with Erased Tapes: ‘one of the most important record labels of the last few years’ (Gilles Peterson). Founded in 2007, the London-based label quickly developed its own distinct sonic profile, somewhere on the boundaries of ambient, classical and electronic music.
