Disembowelment is an assemblage/sculpture made out of the artist’s old cassette tape collection, consisting mostly of 1980’s underground metal demo tapes and live recordings obtained by tape-trading.
Disembowelment also has a performative aspect. It can be turned into a live plunderphonic instrument with a number of cassette decks, mixer and sound system operated by the artist.
