Another Dictophonia

I did another track for Hal McGee's microcassette series. He's up to volume 9! Mine was way back on #7, I just forgot to type about it here. It's called "magnibanjoscope." I made it by opening the resonator of my tenor banjo and putting the recorder inside it, then thwacking it and stuff.

But more excitingly, when i was trying to find a minicassette (are they mini or micro? or both?), I found an old answering machine tape with Stephanie Stone singing "Happy Birthday" to me. Apparently answering machines record at a different speed, somewhere between the two speeds on a dictaphone, so she sounds all slow and spookyish. It's on there as well (as is the supercool THF Drenching!). Thanks Stephanie for letting us use it, and Hal for putting all these together.
