#UNRAVEL is a new work by FOUND and Aidan Moffat completed during a residency with New Media Scotland. This collection of devices forms a reactive sound installation in which visitors can unravel the truth about a narrator’s life by playing records from his collection.
A record player then controls a series of custom musical instruments. These self-playing instruments soundtrack the story of the narrator as he recounts a memory from his life. Each record represents a different memory, but they sound different every time they are played.
Just as a real narrator alters the way they tell a story depending on their mood, the audience and the context, the memories embodied in the #UNRAVEL installation distort, evolve and warp depending on external influences such as time, opinion and pressure.
