Self-Destructive Tape Loop - AMULETS

A word from AMULETS:

“I’ve had a tape reel covered in sandpaper for a while with the intention of destroying a tape loop on purpose. I was recently motivated to finish this project by watching Simon the Magpie challenge Hainbach to destroy some reel to reel loops. Unlike Hainbach (and the inevitable William Basinski comparison) I wanted to go smaller and build a cassette tape loop that decayed within the cassette shell. Through a lot of trial and error I was able to design a self-destructive, self-contained cassette that not only eroded the magnetic tape, but could also be reused and reloaded with different loops for continued future experiments.”
