1:24:34 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I will be presenting the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

This tape is from late 2001 thru early 2002. It was a time where I was struggling to find the right creative direction – focusing on two projects – 209 and Severe Repair. I talk about these projects while walking around NYC and driving around NJ. Luckily for me, I was able to move past these stalled projects the following year and start The Overnightscape, which turned out to be a much better creative project for me.

“Gullhall” was a name for some idea I had – it’s written on the tape, but I don’t talk about it in the audio.

Here’s the Severe Repair chapter I wrote based off the notes I was talking about.
