This fine machine will serve as your constant companion…
I guess this reel originally came with the tape recorder. Not a great advert for the RQ505’s sonic fidelity.
Thrill to the sound of ‘Japanese folk songs played in a modern jazz style’. I love all that racket, happily obliterated in tape growl and splutter.
Sculpture use and endorse the National 401S ‘reverse-a-track’. Frequency response somewhere between 500-5000Hz. Pinch roller doesn’t grip the tape too effectively, so it’s good for physical manipulations.
Concretion. We’ve settled on a finalised track list for the agglomerative audio CD available from our online store. Precise contents historically fluctuated subject to our capricious nature, but we tire of our plaything and move sideways. DVD media remains unsettled, with sunny spells.
DVDR/CDR double pack. Every one is unique (crafted in plastic) and hand sewn (using a machine) by Reuben Sutherland himself. You can order one from us directly.
On the CD, 15 electronic recordings:
1. return to the riviera
2. plastic infinite
3. spring hook
4. synthetic alteration
5. greenish radiating needles
6. not actual size
7. blasted hillbilly
8. tape hop
9. slot hum
11. angularly accelerated hurling
12. the blundering operator
13. super resounder
15. the horde
GAZE INTO THE FUTURE: it is September 2010 and Dekorder have released a zoetropic picture disc LP by Sculpture. It is called ‘Rotary Signal Emitter’. Details follow in the imminence.
I used a different part of this tape reel in the sound riviera radio series a while back. It’s marvelous stuff. Stick around till the end, as the mystery professor’s final line is what really makes this special…
2 mono recordings playing simultaneously, one in each speaker.

Earlier, in the heated upstairs, gnarly drums/analogue synthesizer and bass duo, Temperatures, rubbed air molecules through an organisation of translucent perspex. Afterward, we obtained this recording in the cold subterranean gallery, between frigid water feature, geometric functional items, and moire patterned suspensions.
