TAPEWORM PRESENTS… WORM EATS BEAR – FOR RADIO BOREDCAST
The Tapeworm is a cassette-only label. No barcodes. The cassette will never die! Long live the cassette!
On 20th October 2011, there was a special evening of performances by friends of The Tapeworm at London's The Bear Pit, as part of Merge Festival. In performance were Michael Esposito, Joachim Nordwall, BJNilsen, CM von Hausswolff with Mike Harding, Edwin Pouncey and Peter Hope-Evans with Jill Tipping, Ken Hollings and Zerocrop, with two video works installed by People Like Us. The results were three hours of warmly received, diverse performances and actions.
Merge commissioned Tommo (www.tommophoto.com) to document the proceedings on video - not just the performances, but the space and its ambience. This recording is a mono file of the evening made on Tommo's video camera. The document of the night he captured is one of glimpses. A long evening, jump-cut due to the restrictions of technology. He notes: "This is without cuts/edits and without any clip cross-dissolve transitions. I had to capture various elements of the evening, plus keep changing memory cards. Canon D5 Mk.2 cameras are not really designed for long recording clips, as they overheat - they more for short clip edit film making, so for various reasons clips drop-out, often at annoying parts..." An intriguing incidental splicing, an accidental cut-up.
