I mailed out two avant-psych mixtapes to separate individuals on December 31st. One to United Kingdom and one to Portland.

Most of the time when I’m making a mixtape, I allow no silence once the mixing begins. Notice: Burden Of Friendship (half). Each side of that cassette is 30 minutes long. On this mix, I used about 15 minutes worth of the side and had two or three things playing at the same time as I weaved in and out of the track.

Here is part of my mixtape setup:

 



Nazi Marching And Goose Stepping

La Mancha Pecado - Live At Neon Rose (11-19-18) Young Turks
Morher - Soothsayer
Vernal Crush - 8:53 (Disk One)
Burden Of Friendship - Side B (half)
Jana En Bertin - English Spoken

MVM - Reflections
Jan Schellink - Robosapien En De 6 Baby Poppetjs
Derryl Parsons - Floating Landscapes
Arvo Zylo - Six & Seven
Gong - Dynamite
Chuck Talks - The Girl Who Screams



The Roaring Fleur

Mini-Mutations - Track 3
Muzak - Madness From The West
Michelle Mercure - A Little Piece / Ghost Before Breakfast
Jesus Penis - God Has Everything Under Control
The Jonx - The Scent Of Earth
Earthmonkey - Moonstah
Vox Populi! - Samourai

Orbit Service - As If It Were An Accident
Watch Repair - Far Asleep
Yo La Tengo - Our Way To Fall (Live)
Volcano The Bear - Cassettes Of Berlin
Illicit Relationship - Concise Relaxation
Sacred Cows - Virtual Fantasy
The CJ Boyd Sexxxtet - And Indeed There Will Be Time



......why is this thread in non-sonics?

Two boxes of bank cassettes or cassettes by other artist that you are recording over?

Any idea how long the cassettes has been the attic?

I have a couple of cassettes of recorded Houston noise radio shows that are now 30 years old and they still play and sound good.

Mixtape culture appeals to me, but I realise that if I was suddenly transported back to the days where it existed, I'd lose my fucking mind.

I've tried to make some physical cassette mixtapes in the past, but I don't have the equipment to do anything. I think I have one portable player that kinda worked, but I couldn't do it consistently and anyway I don't have enough blank tapes.

I have a couple of cassettes of recorded Houston noise radio shows that are now 30 years old and they still play and sound good.

Some cassettes are various 80s artists and some are recorded so i record over them. I prefer the iron ones more than chrome ones. It adds the vibe.

I think they were there for 19 mayby 25 years and some of them were really great quality.

I don't think I made many mixtapes in the form of compilations back when I still had a tapedeck. I usually prefer to hear the complete album rather than various songs. What I did do about 12 years ago is to create a compilation for my sister, 3CD's in total before I got too bored with it. It was really fun to make, but very time-consuming. I'll just copy/paste the original notes to save myself from writing it all down again in some other way that basically still states the same.


Quote:
This project started in January 2008, when my sister asked me to look for a couple of versions of the song Over The Rainbow. Her baby twins fall asleep to this song every night, and she wanted to use it as background music for video compilations of them. So I searched Dime and some other sites (TTD, etree, Zomb, Archive.org), and was quite surprised with the wide variety of artists that have played this song during their live performances. Some of them have only played it occasionally, sometimes even as a short tease, for other artists it is the final song of their concerts every night. There's even artists that have named their band after this song! (or so I thought, Wikipedia tells a different story though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_(band) )

After listening to over a hundred versions, I got fed up with it and kept it aside until Christmas came near. In mid-December I searched the same sites again and found some more versions, and have now enough to fill 3 audio-CD's and a few more to continue with a fourth volume. [...] I've listened to many artists I had never heard of before. Some of them I probably never will listen to again, but of others I would love to hear some more.

The following criteria were used:
- Artists may feature more than once if the versions are significantly different
- Teases are welcome, but must have a significant duration
- Sound quality must be good (preferably FM/SBD or good audience)
- No disturbances (loud clapping, screaming or other strange noises)

I used Audacity to edit some of the files (fade in and/or out, cut away banter or other songs). No equalizing or normalizing was done though, so there may be some volume differences between tracks. MP3Tag was used to tag the files. Trader's Little Helper was used to convert .shn files to flac-format, fix SBE errors and create the .ffp file. (So all files will be in flac-format, except if it was taken from a direct webstream (mp2))

If you want to find out more on the history of this song, here's the Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Over_the_Rainbow


and these were the three compilations:

I've played with the idea of some other compilations, especially live versions of one particular song, e.g. Pissing by Low, or Sonic Youth' Diamond Sea but never gotten around to actually do it.


Totally offtopic, but reading about Bytor's tape mixing technique, it reminded me of this album that was made in the seventies by a German guy named GŁnter Schickert. The album is called Samtvogel and you can read about it here (see especially the last paragraph), and listen to it here on YT. Especially the last song (that lasts 20 minutes) is very cool, ultra-trippy krautrock [edit: it's even on bandcamp]

that’s the tape itself? the material that holds the magnetic particles together? it’s some kind of plastic. feels like cellophane when it’s all entangled and fucked up. i think it’s actually a polyester... just so crinkly when you least need it.

it breaks, you have to glue it... uufffff.... not no more. life is short.

I've made CD-compilations here and there. Did one to celebrate my event series existing for five years and handed five copies out to people who answered a simple quizz question in time. Might do it more often, it's fun. But time consuming. So I do have a lot of respect for people that go through the process of doing this with actual cassette tapes.

The thing about mixtapes is you never really knew if the songs you selected would fit on the tape. Then you would end up with either minutes of silence at the end or a song that had the end chopped off.

yep. don’t believe the analog hype. shit was for the moneyed. that included people traveling internationally for shit you couldn’t buy at home

but then again cassette piracy was rampant so you could manage in other ways. still very limited but they were there.

now you don’t need permission from gatekeepers, douches, mafias, anyone.

paradise is here. follow your tastes.

A CD can fit 80 mins, the average tape 45 mins each side. 10 songs is about 30 mins or 35 mins. So there.
