Track 1 : in the serie "what remains on the tape?" after my last concert, i used to play and dervish my endless tapes improvising a piece with them. That time we listen to Maurice Charles Jj on sopranino saxophone recorded live on endless tape during our last gig in Brussels.
Track 2 : tape head play the role of a body contact and provides a beep ! we listen at the end the soprano of the first track re-recorded and transformed as another extension of the same sound.
Track 3 : a found mini-cassette of my grand-father leaving discover a bloody family messy affair (not our) recorded through the phone…
Track 4 : bass drone and low rhythms obtained with the coil microphone fixed on the various power supplies of the magnetophones.
