G Lucas Crane, Nonhorse

As Clocktower continues its monthly Tapemania fair at Second Sundays where tape labels share and sell their cassettes, sound artist G Lucas Crane sits down with Clocktower Radio to discuss his tape mixing station. The mixer, which Crane designed himself, functions like a turntable mixer but with cassettes in place of the turntables. Crane goes on to explain what makes the cassette tape a relevant medium today, and the modern tape label scene.

Following the interview, Crane performs a live set under the name Nonhorse using his tape mixer. Strapped with a suitcase of unlabeled tapes, Nonhorse delivers thirty minutes of experimental, noisy, tape manipulation collage in an exclusive performance recorded in the Clocktower studio.

This session was part of the August 2016 Second Sundays monthly series of open studios, live music, and site-specific interventions presented by Pioneer Works the second Sunday of every month.
