QCS_087-Damages, Fractures, C41, edition of 18
After a long wait the Damages tape has finally materialised! Behind Damages is Douglas Lucas – a multimedia artist based in Brooklyn, New York who also runs the genius NONE Records.
All sounds on this tape are from the same recording of an electric guitar improvisation recorded on cassette. The recording was damaged by being re-recorded onto another cassette while being filtered through a broken amp and various pedals, then pulling out, wadding, and ripping the tape from that cassette, then re-spooling it back into the cassette and transferring it to a computer for further damages.
Very minimal artwork on this release with only written information being printed onto two sheets of thin white card, that is held together with two damaged six second tape loops containing extracts from side A & B. Black cassette shells feature white labels with black and white artwork and text. Every copy is packaged in an intentionally damaged cassette case courtesy of Damages!
