SAMARKAND - 1998 - CONTINUA - Cassette

Samarkand "continua" cassette - 1998





SAMARKAND
Continua
cassette only
bizarre depiction 1998

this was one of the last tape-only Bizarre Depiction releases. I got my first CD burner in 1999.

"Continua" is Samarkand in name only, it was the precursor to Fzzy Pmpr. All of which were aka me, Ian C Stewart. Hi there.

Even though it was constructed on a computer, none of the sound files were saved. Digital/Analog/Digital.

I sampled every CD, record, tape and video I could think of and made something new out of all of the drum breaks, synth leads and between-song chatter from concert videos. And movies.

It was all slapped together with no grand scheme, no thoughts beyond something seeming funny or not. It probably took a couple of months to finish the whole thing. Which is why I joked in the liner notes about it being RECORDED LIVE. I don't think so.

COOL EDIT 96 IN THA HOUUUUUSE

Except for the song "Continua" which was in fact a leftover from the Pitch Wheel sessions. It was recorded with drum machine, cheesy keyboards and bass gweetarrr.
