    _______________

    After 2015's Esalen Lectures LP for Touch Sensitive, Barry Lynn returns to the label under his given name with a twin set of ambient cassettes.

    The majority of the music on the Taurus Tapes results from live looping experiments using an electric guitar as the sound source, although a few tracks on Volume 1 were also created using synthesisers, and embellished with loughshore birdsong and fretless bass guitar.
    The result is an intimate and evolving sound, sculpted live in the moment. Moving away from over- arching concepts, the tracks are mostly titled after the constituent stars in the constellation of Taurus, Barry's star sign, and a common sight in the northern winter sky.

    Shades of Fripp's experiments with Eno can be detected in the Gibson fuzz tone and drifting loops, as well as more Gottsching-styled exercises in tight repetition.

    Vol II Tracklisting:
    1. Gliese 176, 2. Alpha Tauri, 3. Merope, 4. Ruby Star, 5. Kappa Tauri, 6. Lambda Tauri,

about

Touch Sensitive Belfast, UK

TS is a record label with a distinctive pan-genre path taking in David Holmes tense soundtrack for '71', Cherrystones’ comp of splintered post-punk and new wave, Barry Lynn / The Host’s ambient, new-age trips, Documenta’s sweet, cosmic drone-pop, the rediscovery of Maya’s heavy, fried psychedelia, Gross Net's brutal cold-wave and Group Zero's 'analogue wave riders'
