As part if this year's Tor Fest, I had the pleasure of collaborating on a DJ set of tape-only cuts with Natalia Beylis (Woven Skull, The Sunken Hum, Divil A'Bit...), improvising our unplanned selections in a 'call-and-response' manner. This was recorded and has aired, warps, pops, hiss, cuts and all, by excellent human Tristan Bath, as part of his Spool's Out show for The Quietus on Resonance 104.4fm.
