Natural Postures (1980)
tape (taped speech, altered telephone sounds, electric guitars)

This tape piece was built primarily from sounds used in an environmental art work installed at the Franklin Furnace.  It included numerous audio cassette machines hidden in the rafters, playing 60 second loops made on telephone answering machine tapes, and a 100-foot tape loop stretching between two reel-to-reel machines placed on balconies.  The sounds included layered, chopped-up chattering speech, and swooping pitch-shifted dial tones and ringing bells.
