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.

Tapeloops, Walkman, Sampler, CDJ, 78rpm disc, Effectron. Recorded 24th February 2010. Shiiin, Jet Stream, White Earphones: http://www.fromadarkenedsunroof.com

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.
