Rune, you are more than welcome to use that cassette for your exhibition piece.
Forgive me if you know this, but that cassette is meant to be played on a four track recorder, such as this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portastudio
The idea of that cassette was so that the listener can mix the drone piece as they desire to hear it, optionally recording over track to re-mix the piece altogether. If played on a standard cassette player, it will play at approximately half the speed as originally intended, although that is not necessarily a bad thing.
I’m happy to see my work live on more or less, as that was the goal with the OPHIBRE project; produce a vast amount of physical presence and let the reproduction be the artist, not me. I have not created any work in the past six years, as the production of beer for both personal and commercial consumption has occupied my time, on top of buying a house and having a baby.
Thank you for getting in touch and I wish you luck on your future projects

Great to hear from you 🙂 i noticed the interactive idea about the cassette on discogs, if I get a hold of such a wonderful machine one day I will try that! Until now the pitched down version makes a beautiful backdrop for an important story about ressources of the earth, circular economy and personal understanding of time 🙂
Thanks again, enjoy the beers, sounds great I will visit one day if I get back to Maine
