Experiment/collage label in Baltimore, USAHosted by Ultraviolet LightJimmy Joe Roche released a limited edition of 2023 cassettes in May 5.

Transformation collage ~ Drone 3 songs that disassembled and remodeled a Casio keyboard picked up on the street. Comes with DL code.

The modified keyboard doesn't seem to be perfect.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"Some time ago I found a Casio keyboard on the sidewalk. I took it home and took it apart. After discarding the keyboard and exposing the ICs and circuit board, I found various copper on the ICs and keyboard. I started soldering the connections between the nodes, in some places I attached switches and pots between the wires, and I lifted the wires off the board so I could make temporary connections with alligator clips or my fingers. This tape is a recording of the sound of a new instrument, and the album cover is a photograph of the instrument being recorded."

Artist statement by JIMMY J0E ROCHE:

""A while back I found a Casio keyboard on the sidewalk. I took it home and pulled it apart. After discarding the keys and exposing the IC and circuit boards, I began to soldier connections between the IC and various copper nodes on the Keyboard. some places, I installed switches and pots between the wires. Some of the wires I allowed to float above the board so that I could use alligator clips, or my fingers, to make temporary connections. The album cover is a photo of the instrument as it looked during the recording process"
