After 2015's Esalen Lectures LP as The Host (TOUCH 003LP), Barry Lynn returns to Touch Sensitive Records under his given name with a twin set of ambient cassettes. The majority of the music on the Taurus Tapes results from live looping experiments using an electric guitar as the sound source, although a few tracks on Volume 1 were also created using synthesizers, and embellished with Loughshore bird-songs and fretless bass guitar. The result is an intimate and evolving sound, sculpted live in the moment. Shades of Fripp's experiments with Eno can be detected in the Gibson fuzz tone and drifting loops, as well as more Göttsching-styled exercises in tight repetition.
