"Anla Courtis continues to produce music and was even quite prolific during his time in Reynols. It goes without saying that Courtis learned a thing or two from his experience in Reynols; and there's a fundamental constant to all of his work: the cassette. One of Reynols' most infamous albums Blank Tapes was pieced together from the endemic hiss from, you guessed it, blank tapes. Far from being an empty album of silences, Blank Tapes is extraordinarily dynamic, amplifying the magnetic energy of the tape hiss into undulating fluctuations that mirror the somatic patterns of the human body. Reynols' tapes have a heart beat, blood pumping through their veins, and oxygen rushing through their lungs. This crudely built anthropomorphism continues in Courtis' work today, as the cassette and the tape deck remain primary tools in his compositional sensibility."
