Labelled: Regina Back - Autumn 78. Archived Medium: Tape Cassette. by Beynon Archival published on 2012/10/07 10:55:53 +0000 This piece which has become a personal favourite of ours sounds like a duel between a recording of a church organ, a synthesiser and an alarm clock. Regina Back was a keen sound recordist. She was also a devoted user of the schools modest synthesiser collection. The synthesisers were usually donations from wealthy friends of the school who supported the schools ethics or donations from parents or general benefactors. One of these synthesisers which is thought to be used on this recording is the Maxi-Korg 800DV brought to the school in 1976 according to the schools inventory. We hope to confirm this by analysing further recordings of Miss Back's work so we hope to find more soon. From listening to this recording it would seem that the main portion of the piece is a recording of a church organ - complete with airy reverb. The Maxi-Korg, which sounds like it has been modulated through an external source has been sequenced to play along with or placed later on on top of the organ. The rings are unknown but could be an external source like a bell or indeed from the Maxi-Korg itself. Either way it makes for an extremely meditative piece. More info to follow.
