[51bts070] Andy Morello: TAPES


Project yourself in the far future and imagine to look at the present. Now, in the same way, try to immerse yourself in the ancient human civilization periods. You will realize that all relics from those days are so precious! You will start collecting and meticulously conserve them. TAPES are those relics, relics of a future past, buried under ashes and rubbles, which are now resurfaced and reconstructed. TAPES give back the sound of an era and its decadence, letting out a secret desire for a change and a deep search for yourself. They tell, through sound, about the human soul and its fragility. They narrate dreams, visions and desires albeit recorded on (nowadays) almost disused media. TAPES collect songs created during “one take” sessions performed with a modular synthesis system, a pedal reverb and originally recorded on magnetic tapes through a 1984 Tascam Porta One recorder. TAPES is a visionary, decadent, futuristic, mystical and science fiction EP, capable of taking the listener to a distant world.
