Hometaping


There are at least two artists named Hometaping: 1)Hometaping (Nikos Aima and Aris Siafas) started off somewhere between 1995 and 2000 though this is not verifiable. The sound emerged as a need to record anything, anytime, anyplace, anyhow. The songs ended up like out-of-tune pop monsterpieces. Subjects are drawn out of simple everyday life experience (war and sodomy, isolation and imprisonment, hospitals and public toilets, weddings and funerals Read more on Last.fm
There are at least two artists named Hometaping: 1)Hometaping (Nikos Aima and Aris Siafas) started off somewhere between 1995 and 2000 though this is not verifiable. The sound emerged as a need to record anything, anytime, anyplace, anyhow. The songs ended up like out-of-tune pop monsterpieces. Subjects are drawn out of simple everyday life experience (war and sodomy, isolation and imprisonment, hospitals and public toilets, weddings and funerals, sexual violence in art, the nude in theatre, frenzied mothers in voodoo practices, desperate lovers, exploitation in love, forgotten actresses in tombs, socialism and capitalism etc.) and develop in an inescapably delirious way.

The vocals are lyrically deranged. Throughout the songs one can recognize a twisted adherence to symmetry along with discomfort in harmony. Denial of all human ear advancements in recorded sound perception and love for more or less crude techniques in song production. Influences are obvious but not completely.

All music genres of the 80?s (electro pop, new wave, italo, experimental, mainstream etc.) mixed with elements of Greek music of the century, inevitably ringing in the ears, running through the veins, dancing in the genes, abiding in cells Influences:Giacomo Puccini,Joan Baez,Soft Cell,Dinah Washington,Diamanda Galas,Allegri,Kurt Weill,Amazulu,Arleta 2)After many months of sourcing recordings and samples of tape hiss, static, interference and feedback with expensive mics and stuff in an attempt to lend his songs an appropriate level of 'graininess', hometaping abandoned these efforts and instead commissioned a huge machine to be built and programmed with tons of matrices and logorhythms, all designed to synthesise the 'realest' rough edges ever known. To the casual listener, hometaping's methods could be mistaken for being 'lo-fi' - amateurish, even. In actual fact, nothing could be further from the truth. A lot of time, effort and money has gone into perfecting the imperfections on these songs.

Any tinny beats, crunchy noises or faulty flows on his records are entirely meant to be there and ought to be appreciated fully. Please do not take the mistakes on his music for granted, but instead appreciate the poignantly flawed crystalline beauty of these songs in the same way you would a scratched John Michel Jarre LP or a model with scars or something Read more on Last.fm.
