Tape Music

Stuart Maconie is joined by Robin the Fog from the duo Howlround to hear about the benefits and pitfalls of using tape to create music.

Stuart discovers the benefits and pitfalls of using tape to create music with the help of Robin The Fog from the duo Howlround. From the inimitable sound of tape delay and loops, to the juxtapositions created from splicing and the disintegration and snagging of the actual tape itself. Robin brings in examples from the musique concrete pioneer Pierre Henry, Miles Davis' On The Corner and a preview of sound artist Tom White's new album.
