Tag: Altered States Tapes
On this week’s Out From Under, I’m talking with Cooper Bowman – musician and artist, and founder of the Australian cassette label Altered States Tapes.
The tape label, which recently celebrated its 100th release, features music that sits across punk, industrial, experimental, electronic and noise, with a roster that spans both Australian and international artists.
Cooper talks about making music and making tapes, and pulls out a selection of tracks from the label’s past, present and future – including a number of unreleased exclusives from LST, Sleep D, Yuta Matsumura (Orion), Orinokoflo and Newcastle’s Grotesque Circular Dance, as well as a number of Cooper’s solo projects.
It’s 100% new Australian experimental and exploratory music on this week’s Out From Under. We’ll be listening to: new sound works from both musician and composer Rosalind Hall and Sydney’s Alexandra Spence; the Melbourne duo of Tarquin Manek & Ying-Li Hooi on a celebratory compilation from Altered State Tapes; minimal electronics meets exquisite vocals in new work from Allume and Eitanr; plus new music from Logic 1000, Automating, J Campbell and the deliciously named Little Songs Of The Mutilated.
