Tape Alchemy

UPDATE: and here is a beautiful pice of electronic music made by John Baker from the early RW period, kind of reminds me of the krell meme music


  1. Required viewing for anyone into electronic music.

  2. very much, i'm going to try and put up some clips from this program because theres some cool footage of synths I've not seen before

  3. Have you seen the EMS documentary "What The Future Sounded Like"?
