Magneticae taeniae de ‘Carpe Diem’ (Tape Loops 01–12) is a collection of twelve cassette tape loops made from factory prerecorded cassette tapes purchased at ‘Carpe Diem’, a thrift store in Arnhem. The original cassette tapes were transformed by cutting a short strip of tape at random and joining the two ends together. The result is a continuous loop and a new chance composition built from fragments of the existing recording. After finishing, the compositions were assembled and released as a new compilation cassette tape. The process is a study of repetition as a formula – almost a magical aid – for shaping sense from randomness. Or, for using audio junk leftovers to create trance music.
