Hanno Leichtmann writes… “When The Tapeworm asked me to do a tape which referred to tape music or cassette culture, I immediately thought of my thirty-or-so remaining tapes from my (back in the days) huge tape collection.

I bought a Sony WM-D6C to play them back in good quality, took little snippets of favourite songs and ran them through a modular system. I made about forty short static pieces, all about 1m30s long.

They are highly influenced by and, at the same time, a homage to: John Oswald´s “Plunderphonics”, Curd Duca´s “Easy Listening 1-5”, Stock, Hausen and Walkman´s ”Me” 7”, and above all Yasuaki Shimizu´s ”Music for Commercials”. An extended vinyl release of this tape is planned for Fall 2013.” Hanno Leichtmann, Berlin, 16th May 2013.
