Tape Land 140 – New Obliviana Notes / Psycho K-Mart Meander (Jan-Feb 2003)

1:33:43 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

This tape was recorded just one month before I started The Overnightscape. At that time, I was still struggling with my poorly-defined and overly-complicated creative project called “Obliviana”. Listening to the tape, it’s clear in retrospect that I needed to let go of the project – and that’s exactly what I did – a few weeks after making this tape, I shut it all down. This then opened the door for a much healthier creative outlet for me – The Overnightscape – which I am still doing over 18 years later.
