gluttoness - "orthodox cannibalism volume III"

"Orthodox Cannibalism was created by using 2 blank (and 1 nearly blank) cassettes uncovered at the local thrift store which may, based on the material found on one tape which had been recorded on to completely, date back as far as the late 1960's.

The process was to use each beautifully hissy, crackly, juddering side as a sound source processed through multiple distortions and then record the resulting wall back on to the same side of the same tape, hence the cannibalism.

The walls on each side of each tape are completely static, unmoving and free of vocals, hence the orthodoxy.

Be forewarned that the sounds herein have been severely altered by the natural decay of the antique tapes resulting in hiss, volume drops and warping.
