Why Not Fest VII

by Nora Nygard

Tape One 10:05
Tape Two 09:51
Tape Three 09:58
Fest Loop 17:24


This mixtape comprises recordings made before and during my Why Not Fest VII performance. Tracks one through three are transfers of reference cassettes I recorded while practicing my set. Track four is a transfer of the audio that was recorded to my TC Electronic Ditto X4 loop pedal while performing live. I realized about three weeks after the fact that I still had a portion of my Fest set recorded in the looper.
