about

This series of compositions is made primarily from sounds that I took from the very first sound product that I made. I had been toying with sound before but this was my first work that I made with the intention of making a creative sound production.
What I released was a cassette that I recorded just with a small radio and a crappy mic. There was no editing, only starting and stopping of the tape. The fact that there was something like a music label selling and swapping tapes I learned only later on.

I gave this tape as a birthday present to a dear friend who died a few years ago after which I got the tape back. I blew the dust from this tape and was immediately back to that tiny room where I recorded these sounds. The radio sounds illustrate the political and technological news of that time.
