Reel to Wheel

Reel to Wheel is an interactive installation that uses old, abandoned bicycles and salvaged bicycle parts to control reel-to-reel tape machines and play 1/4\" audio tape.

The work explores the intersection between found objects and found sound. It is meant to be a playground environment where people can interact with common objects in new combinations that create interesting sounds and novel associations.
