tape20th Century Tape

This body of exotic electronics emerged from reel-to-reel tapes originally recorded at a state-of-the-art Moog synthesizer studio in Lincoln, Nebraska from 1976 to 1980. Some of the material is used without modification. However, in many cases, sounds and phrases are used as a starting point for manipulation.

Eight pieces from this album were performed on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at the Canessa Gallery in San Francisco along with video accompaniment created especially for the evening.

Silence is strategically used along with an historic palette of sonic textures. Please turn it up! This material has not been audio-compressed.

For SoundCloud, this album has been rendered with the highest-resolution MP3 data compression. But it was originally recorded on high-quality 30 ips analog tape, and then in 24-bit audio; it sounds tremendous as a WAV or AIFF or on a CD. If you have a good hi-fi playback system and would like to experience this album fully, please contact me!
