New Documentary On Tape Loop Artist Amulets

Reader Kilian Vidourek shared this “side B” to his recent documentary about Portland ambient musician Amulets, Tape Wizard.

“I just released a longer, sequel of sorts of footage I never used and thought I’d share,” notes Vidourek. “Hope y’all enjoy!”

Amulets is a project of Portland audio + visual artist Randall Taylor. Taylor is part of a new generation of musicians exploring the artifacts and lo fi sounds of cassette audio processing and tape loops.

side B follows Taylor in October of 2019, leading up to the release of his first full-length physical album.
