Through years of working with tape loops, making music, and performing live, I have put together this curriculum that condenses all of the most interesting and important features of tape loop music into a neatly structured course.
Starting with the history of tape music, we will explore the machines and inventions that inspired some amazing audio compositions by pioneering artists in the field. We will then get practical and examine the tools and materials needed to build your tape loop instruments. I will show you a range of techniques to build cassette loops, long tape loops, and reel to reels, and guide you in the construction of unique instruments.
We will then explore ways of recording, experimenting, performing and using the sounds in your own music. You will be given access to additional reading material, diagrams and schematics, equipment lists, and more.
