This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Tape_Land_Video_300.jpg

1:01:57 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

This episode is part of a sub-project within Tape Land called “Video Phase 2022”. I recently began transferring a ton of old video tapes to digital, and have been posting selections to YouTube. Here, I’ll be releasing the audio tracks of these videos, as well as linking you to the YouTube videos, and The Internet Archive.

Video Rooftop NYC (5/15/89)

On the roof of 170 Thompson St. on May 15, 1989, facing south, looking down Thompson St., from W. Houston St. to Prince St. and beyond. This was meant to be a piece of video art, which you could play on a TV set and feel like you were on an NYC rooftop. After the first few minutes where I am setting it up, the view does not change. There are subtle sights and sounds to notice throughout.

Released 3/13/22
