Hey!

My name is Randall and I make ambient/experimental music and art using 4 track tape recorders, handmade tape loops, guitar looping, pedals, and random broken tape players. 

Although I didn't invent the tape loop, I have spent a lot of time thinking about them, experimenting with them, teaching people how to make them, and overall just pushing the boundaries of what I can make with them as an expression of my art and music. I have performed and toured across the country, had multiple sound art tape loop installations, and have inspired many to get into cassettes as a form of creative expression. I'm a basically a weirdo tape wizard on the internet.

But wait why Patreon?

Very recently I have taken the leap into full time musician/artist life! It's definitely a little scary, but I'm currently trying to make it all work and this is where Patreon comes into play. Your support through this platform directly helps me keep the lights on and keep making art, music, and videos. Any monthly contribution you can do is greatly appreciated and actually helps me not being a starving artist. In return for your support, I hope to use this Patreon page to answer questions, build community, and continue to inspire others to use cassettes in their own creative pursuits. If you follow me on the internet and like the music, art, or videos I have produced, please consider contributing to my Patreon - every little bit helps.
