Description:
Following on from remixes completed for Spartak and Austin Bejamin Trio, ‘Tapesong’ is the first recorded output by c.s.k.a, a mysterious Australian musical project formed upon the notion of utilising acoustic and apparently non-musical sources within the compositional process.

Using only a Bengali folk song cassette as source material, this was then subjected to live computer manipulation to create the material for this release, a 15 minute, three song suite of bell tones, flickering sirens and sleeping patterns.

Whilst the choice of source material may initially seem like an obstruction, the processing applied extracts previously unheard tones and melodies hidden from inside the magnetic tape, the cassette presented as an instrument within itself.
