Make explores music made in unique and fascinating ways, whether it’s someone constructing a song by meticulously sampling an old rubber band, a group of individuals making flutes out of carrots and avocados or someone playing the synth monstrosity they took years to build.
Episode 2 focuses on the thriving world of analogue tape. We feature some wonderful tape splicing from the great Senufo Editions label; distorted manipulations from Aaron Dilloway; mournful analogue disintegration from William Basinski; an incredible take on tape pioneer Bruce Haack and even some wax cylinder mash-ups. We also feature DarwinTunes, an exciting evolutionary musical algorithm, so you can discover just what exactly is meant by “survival of the funkiest”. Stay tuned for volume three, which promises to be just over an hour long.
