■ is a blank cassette compilation (volume 3 in the series).

The 10 artists were asked to submit an audio piece, with a duration of no more than 4 minutes, utilising blank tapes as the sole sound source. The pieces were then combined, top-to-tail, exquisite corpse style, to create a gestalt, resulting in the two distinct side long pieces presented here.

The artists were also asked to submit a 'blank' image, leaving the interpretation of which up to them. These images were then incorporated into the double-sided panels serving as the art accompanying the tape.

"Nothing, I suppose. Just darkness. Absolute night."
