about

Senior figures at the Strategic Tape Reserve are thought to be very pleased upon the public dissemination of the organization's 24th music release: a shared cassette between long-time STR contributors, the California-based moduS ponY, and Cologne's VLK.

Early on in the composition process the co-creators of the music on this cassette exchanged digital folders containing audio files – guitar melodies, baselines, synth drones, field samples and other miscellaneous sound items. These sound-seeds instigated the tracks which you can now hear – providing, if nothing else, a common framework linking the two halves of the release. When the white side of the cassette is facing outward from a standard tape player, listeners will experience moduS ponY's playful, multi-instrumentalist, genre-defying compositions. Turn over the cassette to the red side and now the stereo will play VLK's post-vaporous synth noise and mutated-sample sounds.

In the spirit of Adriatic ports, gymnastic displays of groinal flexibility and low-temperature banana confections, we hope you enjoy this evenly-divided, two-person cassette.
