TAPE MEASURE KID is the new live-playing duo of N, amps + guitar, and Jim Campbell (aka the preterite, www.the-preterite.com)
, lofi samplers, modified analog 4-track recorder and effects. On their double debut releases “Ours Is A Stubborn Monster” and “Zero Is An Even Number” they expand N's drone / ambient style to something that is at the same time drone and beyond drone, including a sort of dark and sometimes weird improv tendency. very unique and for some of you maybe as if N's sustained guitar had been mangled through a computer by some strange wizard. but in fact all you can hear happened in real time, with a cable feeding the guitar signal to jim's cassette scratch orchestra, with the possibility of real-time manipulation while playing, cutting loose from boundaries.
Both records show this special live-appeal of TAPE MEASURE KID, with the live-in-studio material on the vinyl part and the live-on-stage cuts on the CD part of both releases.
