This Track was inspired by the tape-composition "come out" from Steve Reich (published in the late 1960s), which shows the creative potential of tape loops; My composition was realized in using a software sampler where the word "Gemüsetreppe" was cut up in little pieces. These pieces then were mapped across the keyboard. The composition itself was a free improvisation.

Production details:

Ardour 5.12, a-reverb, a-compressor, LoudMax Limiter (from Thomas Mundt), CWITEC TX16Wx software sampler; the track was produced on a 2012 Apple Macbook pro with macOS Mojave.
