about

"Tape Pieces Vol 2. sees Child and Frank in sync and at twenty seven minutes long it leaves the listener putting it back on repeat as it doesn’t wear out it’s welcome... Totally recommended." – Drifting Almost Falling

Tape Pieces Vol. 2 represents the next installment in a series of collaborations between Micah Frank and Chris Child (Kodomo).

While Tape Pieces Volume One focused on the layering and cascading of asynchronous tape loops, this second EP pushes the analog material further into drone territory, dissolving the sense of a repetition through the heavy use of filtering with effects so the loops blur together and bear a faint echo of resemblance to its source. The pieces are slower to evolve, exploring longer and amorphous forms, as in “Static Wheels”, which clocks in at just over 10 minutes.

As with the previous Tape Pieces EP, the songs emerged out of a weeklong session in Chris’s Portland Studio. Favoring two TASCAM 4-Tracks, Chris and Micah recorded layers of short tape loops using a few vintage synths and a Rhodes. The loops were further disseminated into drones though an array of guitar pedals. Field recordings from Portland’s coasts were subtly woven in, providing a tactile sense of place which inspired the moods of these pieces.
