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.
