Nick Keeling // Fallen Flags TAPE

€10,95
  • Availability:

We have received works by Nick Keeling, a solitary pianist from Ohio, USA, which have only been released independently so far.

This work is a cassette he released in 2018. Contains 7 neoclassical ambient songs using his own delay loop and piano. DL code included.

A characteristic of his work is the method of recording piano directly onto a multi-track recorder, and the sepia-toned melodies create a sense of nostalgia.

*There may be scratches due to the recycled case and tape specifications.

-------------------------------

The music was made by playing a piano through a series of connected 8-track and reel-to-reel players through a loop made of ¼ ”tape.

A “Fallen Flag” is a term used by railroaders to describe former companies that merged or went bankrupt. These railroads served as a defining point for many people and places. The names of these railroads signify an era gone by. The artwork on the cassette. The song titles as well are all companies that no longer exist. Is based off the Chessie System and one of its predecessors, the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway.

This album is dedicated to all the friends I made while being a volunteer at the Indiana Transportation Museum. --Nick Keeling
