Mix: Re/Tape 2.0 is an installation incorporating cassette tapes and music. It not only brings you back in time through the cassette tape clouds playing music snippets and discover past billboard top-charters, forgotten gems, but also invites you to ponder the future of music consumption: How we store and consume music? How else might music be stored and consumed in the future? In our increasingly digitised world, is there a role left for the analogue? And after streaming, what’s next?
