Japanese musicians Wada Yonaga, Yoshida Yu, and Yoshida Tadashi create reverberating drum beats on the outstretched tape of cracked open reel-to-reel tape recorders from the 1970s and 1980s. The group, appropriately named Open Reel Ensemble, produces an intriguing timbre that more closely resembles a synthesizer than an analog drum. The group has created the soundtrack for Japanese designer ISSEY MIYAKE‘s last four seasons. You can listen to more compositions by the trio, including this song that mixes their unique drumming technique with a keyboard, on Youtube.
