The Found Tapes Project
In this project DbN take old cassette tapes found on flea markets and thrift stores and use them as raw material in fully live improvised electronic music performances. The found tapes are sampled, manipulated, processed and ”physically played” using granular synthesis and other techniques, to create obscure rhythmical structures, noises and drones. For each and every concert DbN use only cassette tapes found locally within the city or the area of the specific concert venue, making the raw material for every performance totally unique. The audience is encouraged to bring their own cassette tapes to the venue for use in the performance. tapes deep within these thrown away artifacts fading analog dreams a hidden sonic soul waiting to surface /DbN

Peter Kirn, CDM: "Düsseldorf by Night (DbN) improvises strange, creepy-beautiful soundscapes from cassettes. It turns the flea market into a sample library."
Synthtopia: "For his performances, Book looks for cassette tapes in the city where he is performing and then samples, manipulates and processes the old tapes, using granular synthesis and other techniques, to create rhythmical structures, noises and drones."
