Electroacoustics / Music
Musical compositions created with TAPE RECORDERs and MAGNETIC TAPE using a variety of sources, both electronic and natural. Activities in tape music began in both Europe and America after the Second World War. See: TAPE RECORDING.
Various techniques such as SPLICING, TAPE LOOPs, tape ECHO, SOUND-ON-SOUND, tape FEEDBACK, speed changes, tape reversal and MIXING are used in the making of this kind of music, all of which are usually simulated by contemporary digital editing techniques.
