Back in 1983 when I was in high school my friend paul and I started a band, Söftware. We we mainly goofing off but having fun trying to make music like we enjoyed: a mix of prog, jazz, folk, classical... we have broad tastes. we were using whatever gear we could find. even noisy radio shack stuff. we always recorded to cassette.

This is part 1 of a 10 part piece called Whale that we recorded over a period of about 15 years. To be clear, we would get together, jam on this theme, record direct to cassette, each side being the next two parts. each part being the length of a 90 min cassette side. essentially getting together every few years to expand on Whale.

Its very primitive stuff. but totally live off the floor no stopping.

I will be adding later parts as I work on them. Just trying to clean them up a bit. Anyway this is what I was doing 36 years ago... :phones:

Edgar Froese, the founder of Tangering Dream, has been a huge influence on my music since the mid-70s when I first heard TD. When he died in 2015 I immediately set out to write a track in memory. That track, recently re-mastered, is now part of this large ~ 5 hour release of other tributes to Edgar.

Here is the track on my soundcloud:
