Tinty Music: Live at Anomalous Records 31 May 1997
- Densha no naka (Deep in Thought on the Yamanote) 13:58
- The Ocean has Murky Depths to Soothe Your Troubled Soul 16:28
Recorded at only the third live Tinty Music performance ever, this new release
also marks the first time that color artwork has graced a Tinty Music release.
As with most Tinty Music release, the cassette artwork is of a simple design but
this time it utilizes the element of color instead of black & white. This
totally live release is broken down into two tracks each performed in two
separate methods. The first track 'Densha no naka' was thoroughly planned in
advance, so it utilized already designed sounds elements for the synthesizer
and cassette backing. As a result the music is much more structured than
previous live material, allowing the band to incorporate a little bit of live
layering to the track. The second track 'The Ocean has Murky Depths to Soothe
Your Troubled Soul' was designed with only a minimal amount of planning the
night before and as such has a much more chaotic and improvised feel to it.
Overall both pieces show an increase in live performance confidence for Tinty
Music. There are fewer mistakes and the music flows without the presence of any
undesired sounds. Kevin has definitely learned from his two previous live
performances and it shows on this release.
