Hey thanks for the listening :)

and yeah, it's glued as it is - I see it just as an old photography maybe being tape-to-tape recorded (whitout the edit-possibilities for the layers).
Glad that it's working though so far.

Of course lofi quality, but still proud of (all played in monophonic with the MS-10 plus a Solina, so lots of tracks all done via 4track ping pong, upspeeded laters):

Wildfish

Philip Glass Style I guess - minimal music (but it is not that minimal)

"Noisy recordings which only seem to work in context with the recording surroundings/quality"
Absolutely - not pretending more at all here.

Interesting music. What genre is it supposed to be? The synths remind me of Eastern Bloc Synthpop from places like Poland, former East Germany, and the former USSR.
Many paid and free VSTs as well as Kontakt libraries. As well as HW synths/drum machine and acoustic instruments.

Thanks Music Bird,

and that's funny what came in mind to you concerning east bloc synth pop :)
Especially because I don't know possibly anything about this music scene.

I got a monophonic MS 10 Synth by Korg by a friend in the 80ties and it opened worlds to me. It was a great welcomed addition to playing guitar and accompanying it and getting into recording. I guess I learned some basics of sound generation and synthesis this way.

I'm afraid I can tell that there was no genre aimed. But for sure there were influences by New Wave and Industrial for some tunes.

(1988) atmospheric instrumental. just four electric guitars, with some sort of an african percussive touch. 3 were detuned.
Doesn't sound like regular guitars at all I guess.

I used to have a Tascam portastudio in the day and it was so cool! Unfortunately I didn't keep many of the recordings. I like this, very experimental!

Thanks Allomerus

glad you liked that one :)

It was a Fostex here and I did a lots of recordings then. Hopefully I will get it back soon and repaired as I gave it away for that to a local electro engineer specialised on audio hardware. Then I think will try to remaster / remix more of that old stuff. Before the old tapes go to unrecognisable condition..

i gave ballet a spin.
i think i mentioned elsewhere that im not
a big fan of over distorting things
but i still found joy in the composition,
melodies and interesting record scratch
type rhythms that moved it along.
will check out more later.
