London to Rome
running time: 49:29:49, sound installation and limited edition CD, 2008
Unabridged sound recording of a parcel travelling from London to Rome by airmail. Everything on its 2-day journey was faithfully recorded (you will have to ask your local MP how this package passed so easily through our state-of-the-art security devices without setting off any alarms). The CD here contains that recording – all 49 hours and 50 minutes of it (so it’s only playable on a computer of course) – and comes nicely packed in a cardboard package, facsimile original label and sealed with wax.
Label: ReR, London
