Work in Progress: Experiments in Audio Degeneration

Work in Progress, experimenting with analog distortion, this track is comprised of samples of stages of audio degeneration. I'm using a loop of bells and kids toys that I made with Forrester, recorded to cassette and stripped off portions of the magnetic tape with typewriter liftoff tape. This was digitized, looped and dubbed back onto the damaged cassette, then I distorted the tape further by wrinkling it with my fingers. This was again digitized and I layered the audio into 3 tracks, applying effects using Ableton.

Frog & Toad Tape

My dad asked me if I could copy a tape to a cd for him. I said sure, what is the tape? He just laughed and said I'd like it. Next time my parents visited he handed me an instructional tape on identifying frog and toad for species found in Iowa. The tape sounds a bit damaged, perhaps by a magnet.
