about

One afternoon in the early 1980's I decided to take apart and reassemble my stereo that had a quarter inch input socket as well as a turntable and tape player/recorder. The result was a fantastic malfunctioning, stuttering and glitching piece of equipment that suddenly realised my ideas of creating new sound explorations. I promptly pressed the record button on the cassette deck, let rip on my brothers electric guitar and promised myself to write a song from the results one day.

In 2008 the c90 tape was rediscovered purely by chance in a house move and the rediscovery of this TDK inspired me to contact a group of artists and composers who I have spent a number of years listening to. There was just a simple single track sent off via email for inspiration to compose a piece of work for this compilation if anyone had the urge. They did and I am forever grateful to everyone involved in deconstructing the tape and creating this album. Special thanks goes to Taylor Deupree (12k) for mastering this work in the summer of 2008.

Simon Scott.
