“NO” is the first in a series of five cassettes to be released by Curly Cassettes in 2013. The rules of the project are:
1. All music performed by Old Light. Each release produced by a different member of the band. Engineers and recording locations may vary.
2. All tracks recorded to Tascam 388 1/4” 8-track, enabling the project to be mobile according to producer’s choice. All mixes 8 tracks or less.
3. Mixes mastered directly to cassette, ensuring direct analog connection between Old Light and Listener.
4. Each subsequent release in the series of 5 features a variation of one song from the previous release.
5. Each cassette release is $5, includes download. When the series is complete, a handmade box set will be available for $25.
