cassettes making a comeback; help fund the documentary
“A few months ago, the term cassette tape was taken out of the Oxford English Dictionary.
It may seem ironic, then, that the cassette has experienced a quiet comeback over the last few years, as independent labels issuing tape-only releases have begun popping up around the world.
What better excuse to take a look back at this beloved musical format?
As recorded sound continues its love affair with the downloadable, ethereal digital file, the tangible artefact is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
Help us celebrate the A Side, the B Side, the mixtape, and the whole of cassette culture by supporting Cassette: A Documentary. We’ll look at all parts of popular culture influenced by the cassette, including hip-hop and B-Boy culture, indie rock, home recording, and beyond.”
Zack Taylor and Seth Smoot are trying to raise $$$ via Kickstarter to make Cassette: A Documentary. They’re currently at 1/3 of their goal.
