Now, quite contrary to my usual habit of writing twice on a single day here, I just thought of something else and I also to express my grief over the passing of Pete Namlook. I don’t have all of this CDs, but I do have have say 10-15 all time favorite – my favorite that is – Cds of his music. It was a lot more, and perhaps I should make time to play all of those favorites again. I have no idea if he was ill or something else, but quite a shock.
What I forgot is that I will have also two CDR releases soon, both which deal with the use of 4 cassette tapes. The first is a mix I did of a tape I reviewed in Vital Weekly which was presented as ‘here’s a four track tape, now you mix it’, which is right up my alley I think, so I did a whole bunch of variations, edited it quickly on the same day and it will be released by Orphanalogy in an edition of 23 copies, and unlimited downloads. It’s gonna be called “One Day I Got A Four Track Tape And Decided To Do My Own Mix”
The other release is Mutatis Mobilis, which started out when I did a short piece of the 25 years of Kapotte Muziek cassette, as Freiband, which one was urged to play as four track piece. I got a mix from Z’EV (and I am too afraid to tell him I lost his mix) and a very long piece by aalfang Mit Pferdekopf, which Attentuation Circuit released as a cassette and a CDR. I took the tape into the studio, recorded bits of it, took those home and created a whole bunch of raw sound pieces, which untimely ended up as 2 27 minute pieces, which one can put together use as four separate pieces and with an open invitation to mix. There will even be 15 copies available as a four track tape. Also for Attenuation Circuit. Complicated? Perhaps, but have a look at the ‘score’ above.
