Philip Venables’ Answer Machine Tape, 1987 tells queer history of the late visual artist David Wojnarowicz. Using Wojnarowicz’s actual answer machine tape’s contents as foundation and extending his instrument with motion sensors, Zubin Kanga’s piano creates unique visual elements to support the music.
