Chicago-based ambient producer Nick Turner (Tyresta) reworked the entire Orchestral Tape Studies album by zaké (扎克). Nick used his Mellotron M4000D Micro, Fender Jazzmaster, Strymon Timeline Delay, and a Strymon BigSky Reverb to complement and beautifully transform the original OTS arrangements.
Orchestral Tape Studies is a compilation arranged and produced by healing sound propagandist, zaké (扎克). OTS is a group of richly layered movements of fragmented orchestral loops, paying homage to minimalist symphonic composers and orchestras. zaké incorporates field recordings and faint drone billows to accompany these selected samples of orchestral loops. With an emphasis on tone and recurrent murmurs, these four arrangements offer 32 minutes of delicate repetition, reticent sound treatments, and subtle manipulations.

This is PITP23
OTS is offered as a ‘name your price’ download, but 100% of all proceeds will be donated to the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra (MYO) towards a Student Scholarship. The MYO is a youth and family development program of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. The program focuses on developing life skills through the rehearsal and performance of music and is designed to use the life skills learned through music instruction to engage youth in activities that discourage at-risk behaviors and keep them committed to staying in school. A student scholarship is $200 and our goal and intention is to sponsor one child for the program. Further information on The Metropolitan Youth Orchestra can be found HERE.
