MARK VERNON (Gagarin/Ultra Eczema/Entr’acte/Kye/….)
will perform a live soundtrack to an extended cut of the film ‚Tape Letters from the Waiting Room’ directed by Steven McInerney, also released as an LP on the Psyché Tropes label last year. An existential drama exploring the universal themes of death and rebirth ‚Tape Letters from the Waiting Room‘ is an experiment in film archaeology and magnetic memory as it navigates past life experiences. Shifting in succession from the mundane to the metaphysical, the film is composed of extant 16mm found footage from the past century and features an original soundtrack by MARK VERNON culled from his collection of domestic tape recordings, audio letters, found sounds and other lost voices.
Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based sound artist who works with found tapes and acousmatic presence. His oeuvre explores themes of magnetic memory, audio archaeology, voyeurism and nostalgia.
