Drones II follows my experimentation with cassette tapes. I used 3 cassette decks, and modified them in different ways. I disabled the erase heads, added controls to distort the motor speed controller, and made a foot switch from a sewing machine pedal. I created some looping cassettes by hand, each a few seconds long. Some of the tape I used was old or damaged. Audio sources include samples from Drones I as well as other things I had recorded in the past.
The cover art of Drones II is a photo I took of one of the repurposed cassettes used in producing the first track.
