This is tape 17 from the 4-track cassette challenge (fawm.org/forums/topic/9813/).

It started with @pfoo recording drums on track 1, with @standup playing as weird homemade instrument on track 2. Then @nancyrost added "airplane & cups" on track 3.

Weird indeed.

I usually write lyrics and vocals when I do the 4th track and there aren't any, but I had a hard time coming up with something. I tried to simulate a megaphone using EQ, lots of compression and a bit crusher, but I wasn't happy with it. Instead, I decided to add some guitar.

I mixed the song by sidechaining the drums and the guitar to give more space for @standup's instrument, and compressing @nancyrost's stuff to make it more even (the airplane was too quiet!).

Here's the result, I hope you all enjoy it!

Track 1: @pfoo - drums
Track 2: @standup - vague-o-phone (I think?)
Track 3: @nancyrost - airplane & cups
Track 4: @elesimo - guitar
