Tape Measure was created using a quarter-inch metal tape measure that I altered by soldering a small sewing needle to the tip. Then I pulled the steel quarter inch tape out approximately 15 inches and positioned the end with the needle onto an LP record which was placed on a record player. I played an old classical music LP Rigoletto-Questa o quella, which is barely audible or distinguishable.
