Office Space

For Two Channel Fixed Electronic Media:

Office Space pays homage to anyone who has suffered under the tyranny of malfunctioning office equipment. The piece stemmed from my experiences as an administrative assistant. I came to enjoy the pure tones of the photocopier buttons and the whirring polyrhythms it generated as it spat out page after page. After deciding to record these sounds, my otherwise mundane clerical tasks all became potential sound sources: the photocopier, the scribbling of a pen, the crumpling of paper, and typing on a keyboard. Office Space subsequently became my creative outlet for all of those frustrating paper jams.
