about

First release. The earliest, dirtiest, most un-listenable rubbish you subject your ears to. Tape-manipulation materials. This is before the digital age so it's really primitive. These recordings are very old and extremely low-fidelity. The sound quality is pretty awful to say the least, but I just wanted to make that clear so no one who may be listening to this material destroys their entertainment equipment and attempts to blame me for it. Use this music at your own risk.

Some trivia: Original self-humored cassette "Somnolent Melancholy", which contained most of the tracks on this audio archive; this is what started my experiments in audio. All this material is primitive, including the art for the cassette boxes. One thing I can recall off the top of my head is how difficult it was to painstakingly make those cassette labels by hand when I didn’t have the sticky labels to use.

One other thing I recall is how fun it was to keep my little sister awake in the middle of the night by blasting low-cycled feedback and distorted noise through the walls of my bedroom.
