One of the things that ignited my passion for sound and sound manipulation was messing around with an old reel-to-reel machine – a Sony TC377 in actual fact. A great, three speed machine that my Father came home from work with one day. I found it amazing that I could speed things up, slow things down, reverse things… rather basic now of course but to me then… wow! As a late birthday present to myself I bought a new, old machine… yeh! A rather big (and very heavy!) TEAC. What will I do with it? Well I’m not sure but you can bet it’ll be experimental in some way!
