A cassette that requires assembly upon acquisition? Right up my alley. This work in particular is reminiscent of some of Stephen Cornford’s tape experiments, though the A side consists of an amusing tutorial on precisely how to assemble said cassette followed by time spent waxing philosophical over soft pink noise. Must I point out that the cassette must be assembled to listen to the assembly instructions?

Although portions of Ophibre’s output are slightly mundane drone-based works (I should point out that many are dynamically very interesting and worth seeking out), his self-released cassettes have the wonderful packaging conceit of liner notes or objects stuffed into tiny resealable baggies attached to the case. People love things stuffed into tiny baggies – fact.
