Multiple simultaneous audio tracks require some sort of mixing setup, but concatenations can be performed on any sound source with something as simple as a pause button. The present compilation requested submissions which were composed of nothing but concatenations. It is fair to say that the artists who submitted achieved varying levels of accord with this request. Three early works by The Tape-beatles are perhaps most faithful to the concept, which should not be surprising, considering who put together the comp. Works by Bob Gregory and Jason Gibbs recall childhood memories in a haunting and evocative sound construction. Many more excellent tracks accompany these, and the sequence of tracks is arranged for maximum listenability.
