Short lo-fi drone noise composition on a 14.5 second loop where the plastic cassette shell is replaced with recycled craft card, all the guide rollers are held in place with drawing pins inserted underneath. A little side-project I’ve been working on since the start of the year, more are planned!

A 50 minute recording documenting a 1960’s Stella Stellaphone ST470/00 reel-to-reel tape machine playing a 16 second loop of sounds derived from grinding/rubbing several sizeable flint nodules together. No effects pedals, digital processing or editing was utilised for this experimental harsh noise wall project. One of the flint nodules featured a naturally occurring hole which acted as a handy capstan for the magnetic tape to run through. Based on this recent short video work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYhyhcp2rSc&t=15s
B&W folded cover and insert is printed onto yellow paper, every CDr is rubber-stamped. A small segment of the original tape loop used in the recording is included with each copy. Released on Quagga Curious Sounds in an edition of 20 hand-numbered copies.
