From 2000‑2005, I used an 8‑track digital workstation as a sketchbook for audio ideas and songs‑in‑progress.
The hard‑drive on the machine was tiny, so I continuously burned tracks onto cd‑rs and kept them on spindles.
I was rather haphazard about storing them ‑‑ often they were dirty and in the sunlight,
and I recently discovered that some have deteriorated to the point of being flaky and unlistenable.
I’m in the process of rescuing material from the cd-rs and storing it digitally. Here are a few sketches for your potential enjoyment.
