Open sound Group - Tape Music recordings

In September 2012 I joined the Open Sound Group in London for a collaborative workshop and recording session all about experimenting with tape. The recordings were released in January 2013.

The fourth Open Sound Group event was held at Elevator Gallery, Hackney Wick on 16th September 2012 and featured seven artists and musicians experimenting with analogue tape. This release documents recordings from the event.

Participants: Daniel Adeyemi, Melanie Clifford, Graham Dunning, Emily Evans, Gary Fisher, Henry Holmes, Simon Reuben White.
Illustrator and visual artist Emily Evans also made some images during the event, included in the download.
