Tether (formerly PAK) is the cassette tape loop-based project of artist Lauren Pakradooni. Since 2007 she's produced a steady output of cassette releases, with a distinctive sound ranging from severe noise to off-kilter songforms. We are very excited to present the world with her first-ever vinyl release. Hypnotic stretches of homemade loops give rise to minimal and menacing song structures, strange and inward psychic topographical exploration, in that immediately recognizable Tether style.
Recorded in Philadelphia, PA, 2015.
Cassette Tape Loops recorded with Yamaha PSS-140, BOSS DR-220, Casio VL-TONE, Roll-up Piano, Stylophone, and Vocals.
Performed on Tascam 424, 424 MKIII, and 414 MKII.
originally released on cassette by Refulgent Sepulchre (RS 014) in 2016.
