All music by Hanno Leichtmann – tapes, Sony WM-D6C, modular system, Telefunken equalizers, LXP-5. Recorded at Static Music Berlin. Thanks: Götz Rogge for that tape back in the day…

Hanno Leichtmann writes… “When The Tapeworm asked me to do a tape which referred to tape music or cassette culture, I immediately thought of my thirty-or-so remaining tapes from my (back in the days) huge tape collection.

I bought a Sony WM-D6C to play them back in good quality, took little snippets of favourite songs and ran them through a modular system. I made about forty short static pieces, all about 1m30s long. 

They are highly influenced by and, at the same time, a homage to: John Oswald´s “Plunderphonics��?, Curd Duca´s “Easy Listening 1-5��?, Stock, Hausen and Walkman´s ��?Me��? 7��?, and above all Yasuaki Shimizu´s ��?Music for Commercials��?. An extended vinyl release of this tape is planned for Fall 2013.��? Hanno Leichtmann, Berlin, 16th May 2013.
