This release presents a selection of sound experiments made by Danish tape amateurs during the period of 1959-1976. The pieces included on the record are all contributions, which have been submitted to Danish tape amateur contests, but none of the works have been released before. The compilation represents a fragment of a previously overlooked and forgotten piece of Danish sound- and music history, where people experimented with the tape recorder in their spare time, creating sound collages and electronic music.
