Ring a bell until you tell yourself to stop

A reel-to-reel tape machine playing a loop of sounds from a bell recorded at different tape speeds to give different pitches. The bell which was used to make the sounds acts as a capstan for the tape loop. The title of the work is also the instruction that the piece was made in response to. This piece was made as part of sixty_six_events.

Shown at Islington Mill, Salford, January 2010.
