_______mark_lyken - turtle line, turtle walk_______

Mark Lyken is a filmmaker & sound artist based in rural Dumfriesshire, Scotland

- ZX Spectrum clone computer with Turbo Sound (2 x AY-3-8912 sound chips), esxDOS, Pitch Shifter, EQ

The tones & drones on this release were generated by playing random 'turbosound' mods on a ZX Uno computer & entering the NMI menu in esxDOS while the tracks were still playing. A happy consequence of this is the last playing note(s) hang indefinitely. The resulting drones were recorded & layered in Reaper on a battered white Macbook.

Additional ornamentation recorded live from Protracker
