It's Only Our Belief in the Need for Security That Makes Us Insecure

  • The Only Physical Copy in the Universe
    Cassette

    This is the very cassette tape to which I recorded all the songs in this lo-fi series. I've hand-painted some unique artwork on it, and it includes additional unreleased recordings that exist nowhere in the world aside from this tape. This is and will always be the one and only cassette copy of this music.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Tape Machine Feels via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

I don't know where this fiction comes from, but I find myself feeling so anxious about the lack of security in my art, my finances, my self, my life. The feeling resolves when I remember that insecurity is the nature of everything, that everything dies or ends, and that nothing would have value if it were completely stable, changeless, permanent, or easy. Insecurity is what gives life its ebb and flow, its dynamics, its rhythms. Paradoxically, this only becomes a problem when I set out in search of its solution, not having realized that this ostensible insecurity makes life musical.
