Currently reading: The Factory by Hiroko Oyamada 📚


I just came across this little guy! I think I may have purchased this around ~2004 for university? It definitely pre-dates me having a proper DAW or recording gear.

Side A of the cassette is one long recording of the TV? A lot of old commercials and crappy daytime television, I’ve been able to get a lot of nice sound and voice slices from it.

Side B contains a lot of quick audio notes such as a guitar melody, chord progression, playing synth or a loop from my old Korg ElecTribe Rhythm. As you can imagine there are a lot of nice sample/loop points.

This will be fun to layer upon and build out some nice pieces.
