light twists and carves its improbable path..
each photon, a tiny world in chaos...
until darkness swallows up the whole...
"Subspace electronica with wires and tape..."
The Amber Tapes, originally from Manchester, turn their obsession with vintage analog tape machines into dark experimental soundscapes, often part of multimedia installations.

Music for cult b-movies yet to be made... For licensing work email here.
