Updated Video! Suitcase of Drone: Ambient Tape Loop Music

This is the official recording and live setup of Austin based experimental musician Amulets. This rig (lovingly called the Suitcase of Drone) is compromised of numerous effects pedals and two 4-track tape recorders playing back handmade tape loops of varying length. We previously featured a version of the Suitcase of Drone back when we published our Analog Tape Issue in May.

The 4-track on the left is mainly samples and keyboard drones/chords, while the 4-track recorder on the right is for additional textures and melodies (field recordings, noise, and guitar/keyboard parts). The 4-track recorder on the left also acts as the main mixer for the whole setup. Enjoy the video for more!
