The toy which made this track possible was our Boss RSD-10 sampling delay, a small digital delay unit that made it possible to feed back its output to the input. Unlike in modern delays, the feedback was realized analog, so each repetition of the signal went thru the (cheap) analog digital converter, into the memory and back to the digital to analog converters. As a result, the delays get more and more deconstructed and noisier with each repetition. This effect can be clearly heard in the last 10 minutes of the take. The unit also allows to change the delay time by continuosly changing the sample rate, which also alters the pitch.
When listening to it now, I remember that Gerhard and me already in 1996 came to the conclusion that the altering chords are a bit annoying after a while. But this was before multi-tracking or hard-disk recording and there was no chance to get them out of the mix later...The track has a dropout after around 10 minutes. I did not bother to fix this.
