Michael Ridge “Live Tape Loops”

QCS_137 Michael Ridge “Live Tape Loops” File/Download

Rough and improvised tape loop jam using a combination of two microcassette loops and one cassette loop, playing a mix of field recordings, singing bowl experiments and heavily warbled/slowed down classical music. The soundtrack to my lockdown experience.

The first ever digital only release on QCS! You can buy/stream it on my Bandcamp page (and check out my other stuff too!):
