stretched – chewed – twisted – thinned – torn – creased – snapped – jammed – ripped – crumpled –
spliced – strained – kinked – scarred – mutilated – strangled

Home taping was killing music. “Bandsalat” is a digital installation of an analogue disaster.
The audiocassette requires an emotional discourse between music and listener/compiler, because
the space on a cassette is limited, the music is well-chosen and becomes a self-contained product
(source: ‘back to mono’ by Phil Oltermann). “Bandsalat” commemorates this anonymous creativity.
