Mind Over Midi

Craig Tattersall

Man with a tape recorder

I am a huge fan and collector of Craig’s music and labels. Last weekend I took the time to play the epic The Seamen and The Tattered Sail – Light Folds DVD in full. Seven hours of unbelievable beauty. I was so inspired by the music, then came the idea of a selection from the artist’s brilliant work. – Mind Over Midi

A lot of times it’s not only the sound itself but also the way it has deteriorated. I just love the crackle of vinyl, the saturated distortion of analogue tape, the hiss of wax-cylinders, the aging process of the artifact itself is equally important as the sounds themselves. They add a second layer of emotionality to the sounds. The medium is part of the instrument. (Craig Tattersall)
