Like Simon Collison | Yes, people still buy tapes!...
... even when they have no way to play them.
I knew that, with this being a multimedia project, if I didn't buy the physical media I'd be missing out. And I was right.
Simon says in "Paper Cranes":
"when this survivor shakes my hand, it unlocks a deeper level of empathy; makes everything tangible and immediate."
Although not on anything like the same scale, there is a similar response to being able to touch and view the printed materials that come with the tape, they give a sense of connection to the music, and its subject, that cannot be experienced by listening alone.
@colinwalker Such a good park. Was a nice detour 😀
