Caroline Park and Asha Tamirisa’s debut, SOTO, takes its material and title from their debut performance together at Jed Speare’s Studio Soto here in Boston. Seamlessly built upon a combination of generative patches, pre-recorded sound, and live-sampling, SOTO moves slowly as repeating motifs and percussive detail ebb effortlessly in and out of swells of ambient drone-sound. This cassette presents a two-part studio analogue of their performance, condensed and edited with care from the original board recording.
One-time edition of 100 copies duplicated on chrome tape in clear cassette shells imprinted by National Audio Company. The four-panel jcard features imagery by the artists and a still from a video taken during the performance and has been printed via a combination of offset printing, hand-stamping, and embossing on ivory, linen-finish paper.
