Zebra Mu “Voice and Objects” C9 & 3″CDr

This sold out on the day of release but I’m pleased to say it is still available to stream/download on Bandcamp!

An experiment utilising minimal/modest gear to its full creative potential, for Voice and Objects I restricted myself to a single upcycled telephone microphone hooked up to a semi-functional portable cassette recorder. The sound sources (as the title suggests) being only my voice and a small array of objects which include a crushed drinks can, springs, gravel, vibrator, pinecone and cymbal. These experiments were stitched together into three ultra-lo-fi noisy sound collages! Haphazard Dada nonsense at its best!!

Michael Ridge “How Long Has It Been?” CDr

QCS_167 Michael Ridge “How Long Has It Been?” CDr (edition of 34)

Twelve tracks composed from heavily water damaged and stretched reel-to-reel loops. The original material on the loops barely manages to play through the layers of hiss and natural degradation, creating a sentimental and almost melancholy work. The reel-to-reel tape was discovered in a box with an assortment of photos, old envelopes, and leaflets (used for the cover art) being thrown away in our local area.

Colour artwork is mounted onto a pale lilac CD sleeve, each copy includes an additional colour insert and rubber-stamped CDr.
