The subject of "Wire Tap" is one year of the artist's telephone conversations, providing glimpses of the personal and professional circumstances surrounding Levine's production. This subject, linked to such traditional genres as self-portraiture or views of the artist's studio, is appropriately rendered in the unusual medium of sound.
