Listen on Soundcloud.com

decided to have some fun with this somehwat broken old stereo mixer thing I picked up earlier to see if I could make it work

radio shack SSM-100

some star trek deep space nine is mixed in there in the beginning 




recorded to my ancient TEAC tape deck. some sounds are coming from a banjo loop triggered on my yamahaCBX10


the drum is provided by the yamaha dd-20s, which is a fucking toy drum pad but if you eq it, it sounds nice.


then later I ran this italian church organ 'bontempi giugiaro' into a vox amp with and into the mixer and fukked with it. the tape ran out mid jam. will try some more jams with this ridiculous set up.

dude this has some much potential, literal trash techno. is the star trek deep space sampled from a audiobook or something? it fit in nicely

I really like where it went during the last half. Reminds me of weird old home-made cassette techno that you'd find at a garage sale. A certain lo-fi charm, but you have some nice musical ideas woven in here and there.

I like it, I just wish it had one or two more elements/cheapo keyboards going on. One time I saw this sequencer/all in one studio thingy made by either a subsidiary of radio shack or texas instruments?? and it was like from 1998 and probably didn't even have the software that was supposed to go with it. I tried looking it up but couldn't find a picture, in lieu here's this thing
