Norfolk Trotter “Nodule” reel-to-reel loop

QCS_124 Norfolk Trotter “Nodule” reel-to-reel loop (edition of 15)

Experimental and lo-fi Harsh Noise Wall reel-to-reel loops from my side-project Norfolk Trotter. Nodule comprises of an 8 second loop documenting two live recording sessions, both captured utilising a 1960’s Stellaphone ST470 portable open reel tape recorder. The first Wall is crafted from amplifying and distorting the vibrations generated from grinding two flint nodules together. The second is a sparser and more exploratory piece, focusing on the texture of the flint cortex with minimal distortion used.

Front cover artwork is printed in red, whilst the inside cover is printed in black onto light blue paper. Each loop is packaged in a black backed library cassette case. Upon purchase you can also be sent via WeTransfer two 19 minute recordings from my own loop being played back.

QCS_121 Michael Ridge “Dreams In Vintage Hairy Latex” 8″ s/sided latex anti-record 78 RPM & b/card CDr (edition of 8)

A tenderly crafted latex anti-record containing bodily fluids and generous amounts of pubic hair trapped just under the playing surface. This surely is the true sound of love. A b/card CDr accompanies each copy that documents several attempts at playback.

Various “Microcassette From A Greek Answering Machine” 3″CDr

QCS_120 Various “Microcassette From A Greek Answering Machine” 3″CDr (edition of 38)

The idea for this compilation came about when Manolis Pappas (Coherent States http://www.coherentstates.com/) found a damaged microcassette whilst out walking in the suburbs of Agia Paraskevi (Greece). He very kindly sent me the microcassette and upon receiving it just over three minutes of lo-fi audio was discovered: frenzied messages, background music/noise and beeps from the answering machine itself!

An open call was created inviting members of the Electronic Cottage community to download the found audio and rework it anyway they liked, the original callout is detailed here: https://www.electroniccottage.org/michael-ridge/ec-microcassette-call-out. Six artists responded: Frank Audiffret, Mike Nobody, Rinus Van Alebeek, Rafael González, Dylan Houser and myself, the result is an eclectic and superb mix of experimental audio art!

Rubber-stamped CDr is packaged in a clear plastic sleeve with folded colour art work. Each copy includes three paper inserts.

QCS_118 Zebra Mu “Anti Flex 2” s/sided flexi-disc anti-record 33 ⅓ RPM and CDr (edition of 7)

Follow up to the first Anti-Flex released in 2010! Relatively playable with plenty of surface noise (as you would expect) and slithers of the original contents seeping through. For added fun I recommend utilising the additional holes on the playing surface…..

Portions of the playing surface is sanded down, spray painted (gold, green and red) and hole-punched, each copy is unique. Every flexi features a colour centre label and includes a paper insert printed in magenta ink onto pink paper, these are housed in a stickered black card sleeve. An accompanying CDr documents various attempts at playing each one, this is housed in a folded colour paper sleeve.
