Limited edition of 500. Anode has been the professional alias of Robert Carlberg since 1972. The Seattle-based musician has dabbled in musique concrète, minimalist tape music, drones, manipulations, and other non-keyboard-based electronics. Through founding a newsletter for electronic musicians in 1979 called SYNEX (together with Charles Larrieu), establishing one of the first DIY tape labels (Anode Productions, which released works by Anode and Kerry Leimer), and writing a monthly column for Electronic Musician magazine (1979-1989) and Polyphony, Carlberg was one of the very first active cassette-producing artists, label-runners, editors, networkers, and catalysts for the worldwide DIY electronic music exchange, and one of the most important persons and influential artists in what has come to be known as "cassette culture." This double LP includes tracks from Anode (1979), Trips North Trips South (1979), Kinetic Experiments (rec. 1974-'79, rel. 1981), Early Tapeworm (1975), Floyd Cramer's Hall of Gold (1975), and Year of The Taperecorder.
