Chopstick – Ginger Garlic Fantastic (2011)

On this day in 2011 I had apparently spray painted the 30 second looping cassette tapes that I used for a tape series I called “Ginger Garlic Fantastic.” I had created a loop on my computer which is embedded here.

Computer was connected to the tape recorder and I would record 30 seconds at a time, changing the parameters of the sound source. The end result was that each tape had it’s own unique composition. They would all sound similar but each tape was unique. I sold each cassette tape for a couple bucks each. I thought I had one around the house but I’m having difficulty finding the last one that I kept for myself.

Found the cassette tape. My wife drew a cat onto the tape so she kept it.
