Of course you can join the circle :) Activity slowed down a bit in the last few months, but maybe we just need a bit of fresh new air. You should PM MutantLabs for the most recent mailing list (aka addresses and people you can send/trade tapes with).

Welcome!

Yes, from 2018, forgive me, I've been slacking, but listening now to the last tape of spivkurl called slowinse. Side A has a lot of experimental sounds and loose structure, sometimes more recognizable sounds but more often soft chaos. Reminds me of this French post-punk / experimental group Ptôse (except there is no voice here), Very cute. Side B is more rhythmic and starts off with an amateurish attempt at post-punk, and I really like this. Now pair it up with some ambivalent vocals and make a real song from it! Also the second track is great, lo-fi almost techno with this chirping acid-like sounds dropping in and out. And the third track too, amazing! :mrgreen:

All in all a great tape, tracks could use be a little tighter and more structured, but I like clumsy sounds too.

Hello are you alive?

:cry: Do you still have a way to listen to cassettes, or was the recording deck the same as the playback deck?

Hey hey sorry for all the delays, the magazine is currently on-hold in favour of some other projects and personal life. Of course, I am still going to work on it in when in the future when I have some time for it again and still have a good feeling about it will be released.

Meanwhile I am starting a newsletter for musical and artwork/photography related endeavors. Anyone that is interested hit me up via PM or mail to receive a copy of the newsletter!

Also, here is some more recent music drone stuff:

Let us know when you release the full tape.
Will you make a physical tape??? Please!



Yesterday I recorded a drone - again.
https://freesound.org/people/gis_sweden/sounds/537463/
The drone has a form of pattern repeating every 2 minutes. But other thing are vaguely linked to this pattern. The heart of this patch is Intellijel Quadra + Expansion. I'm using 3 oscillators and noise. I add some character to the sound with a driver pedal (Boss BD-2).

I connected the pedal as an effect on my little mixer. You know effect send and return. The OSCs are standard Doepfer and a Noise Reap Bermuda.

Cassette deck is a good thing :party:

I'll see what I can do! For now it's a digital mixtape with the music of others + lots of samples, so if you like to give it a listen send me a PM! I'm not frequenting here anymore, but PM's will be read :).
