From midi orchestras to Schopenhauer via compositions made from the sun’s own radio frequencies, Daryl Worthington finds the onset of autumn hasn’t dimmed the amount of inspiration to be found on cassettes this month

I spent a big chunk of last month watching streams from Tusk and its accompanying fringe, the annual festival of experimental music in Newcastle forced online in the wake of Covid-19. Events like this going digital really drives home how far reaching the spectral community of weirdness is.

The ten tapes this month all tap into that, whether it’s the Zabte Sote label uniting a globally spread network of Iranian producers, international collaborations between sound artists, or bedroom producers releasing their home made symphonies into the world.
