Meta (Tape)

Label: Muscut

Format: Tape

Genre: Electronic

Preorder: Releases June 21st, 2024

Meta is a syllabic abbreviation of two words: "Metallophone" and "Tape." Metallophone and tape music by Nikolaienko.

*200 copies limited edition* "It’s an album where I’ve limited myself to using only two instruments—a metallophone and a four-track tape recorder. Explorations of the metallophone and tape sounds are deconstructed and reintegrated into tracks with cassette loops. This release is part of this year’s Muscut label series, dedicated not to electronic but to electro-acoustic music focusing on analog recording and production." - Nikolaienko, taken from the Shape platform interview (March 2024)
