Trying to make new sounds in a analog way is mighty difficult. In the age
of sophisticated audio manipulation software, where the novice can created
wonderful sounds with ease, it is just no wounder why many artist have
dropped their analog gear for virtual equipment. Telegraphy on the other
hand, has taken minimal-techno back in time, where all that was available
Synth loops were provided by cassette tape loops along with various analog
effects. By using these loops, a more rich sound, where as traditional
software based methods can not obtain such quality. These tape loops
consists of modified cassette tape cartridges. Only using a few inches of
tape is enough to create a two or three seconds of sound.
Ambient backdrop noise is provided by a vintage vacuum tube receiver. This
old radio with it's etheric tonalities not found in modern solid-state
electronics, can be heard off in the distance releaving the listener from
the rhythmic pulsation of drums and loops.
