Label: The Tapeworm
オープンリールを駆使し奇妙なミニマルや実験的なアンビエントの創作を行っているオランダの作家Wouter Van Veldhoven。英Touch系列のカセットレーベルThe Tapewormからの2013年ソロ。本作もかなり安っぽくて古臭い単調なループ&ビートが詰め込まれてます。
Cassette only, limited edition of 150 copies. Wouter van Veldhoven has been fascinated by the imperfection of musical equipment since 2004 when his first sampler broke and he started collecting tape recorders, junk and some rudimentary analogue gear to create music with. After a few years of making experimental ambient he decided to try and turn his studio with modified, half crippled, tape machines into a repetitive beats production center. Here are the results. All tracks by Wouter van Veldhoven, using 24 reel-to-reel tape recorders used for looping, delay, reverse delay and editing and a Doepfer A-100 system, for filtering and switching things. Sound sources: tape-hiss, a broken valve radio, a defective 50s television set, self resonating filters and sine wave generators. Recorded between February and June 2013.
