And I think real names are necessary to give these things credibility.
We like anonymous. If that means we can't post here... hey, haven't for a long time anyway.
Why anonymous? Because we're anti-ego. Because it's a great way to get honest feedback from friends rather than "It's great" because, you know, they're friends. And lots of other good reasons. But that's just us. If it means we can't post here, cool.
Oh, and copied the other half the thread, since he won't even read the forums, and he Skyped:
"One other cock-up: the 120mm "CD" in the box set isn't a CD at all. That's why it's clear. Tell 'um what it is."
It's a clear, plastic "regular" CD that's actually a unique, etched 78RPM record. Yup, we built a Japanese model of an Edison recorder, and played stuff, and when we liked it, we put on a plastic disc and etched a 78RPM "record" during it, with a "horn" that captures the sound. No mics, no electronics... well, a motor spins the disc so you can etch it. But that's all.
Can you play it? Probably not. Although they sound pretty cool at 45 and 33RPM and will not hurt your needle nor turntable, we promise! Should you put in your computer? Nope. Won't hurt it either, though. What would you hear? Super lo-fi drones and swirls and stuff. That's yours to keep and hear... it's one of a kind, just like you.
We wanted to create unique recordings for unique people. And hey, 78RPM gets a bad rap. So anyway, if you have / bought / get the boxed set, that clear disc? Won't hurt your computer, but it's not a CD, it's a 78RPM record, and every one is unique. Just like you. Really.
