SIDE A : Studio Version
All sounds, instruments, field recordings you hear have been sent by several friends, artists and mostly of them have been previously recorded at the Maïzing Studio with the artists during collaboration, improv session or radio show at home.
These sounds have been edited, some have been processed, some have been baddly treated and others are safe... Then, all materials have been fixed on tapes to play with (one artist per side or sometimes one artist on a complete cassette).
Those 11 tracks are real-time compositions on tapes recorded live on 25 february 2013, played with 3 magnetos cassette, a walkman and a dictaphone. (Some are softly edited (in/out).
Definitively “Guests on Tape” is nourishing by all precious meetings, this project is a kind of testimony of them, offering a wealth and a quality of hallucinating sounds, a kind of “big ensemble for tapes” in which all sounds are hijacked from their original context of recording and re-use as new sound materials, under another form.
