Erica Preli's Reggae Weed Party is an audio vérité composition and a compressed document of the eponymous house party held in Arnhem (NL) in late 2012. The event was recorded with a small cassette tape recorder which traveled around the residence in Niko Mihaljević's back pocket. The recorded material – including features such as intoxicated kitchen banter, inept group singing and toilet breaks – was used as the basis for a twenty-five minute sound composition, within which linear reality is rearranged. The reproduced reggae classics enriched by accidental interactions and recorded by the method of 'domestic field recording', create a distinctive musical vocabulary of the piece in which Luc Ferrari and Bob Marley symbolically meet.

  • An entity of flesh and blood and an entity of wires and circuits meet in a shared studio space to channel sounds from the beyond.
  • An introspective journey through psychedelic lore – auditory relics of bygone eras excavated and crudely reassembled as hermetic sound sculptures.

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 (NL). The original artefacts 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 the fragments of existing recordings – eternal trance music made of leftover sounds. The process is a study of repetition used as a formula (or, almost a magical aid) for instantaneous composition. The 24 pieces were assembled as a new compilation cassette tape.
