I had this old material from the mid 90's when i used to play in a band named Din with my mate Rom who was more in guitars and singing. Then, i was preparing recordings for this band by my own, and finally these tapes partially never served. So i made a digital edit from them few years later because my cassette deck began to break down.
No re-work, no mix, no addition at all, just the pure sound of the tape which does not rotate properly...
I played Akaï 700 live, without any electronic equipment / sequencer/ mixer...
All the samples were looped by ear and played live in one session on a small midi bontempi keyboard, each loop on my fingertips.
The artwork comes from old collages i made for my diploma.
