Alan Morse Davies - Trieste
A very early recording made when I was 16 using a toy xylophone, two reel-to-reel tape recorders, and a church. The two tape recorders were used to build up 6 or 7 layers of toy xylophone (I have no notes from this time alas), then the layered recording was slowed down to 1/8th of the original, just using the normal tape speed controls. The slowed down recording was then played back and amplified into the church using the first player on the ground, and recorded by the second player up near the organ with I think 3 or 4 strategically placed condenser mics. Recorded in 1982.
