Recorded in 1991/92 when I was 15, and released in 1992, Dotlip was my first tape. No it wasn't, it was my second tape from 1994. Actually it was both. It was reissued with different artwork by the IMMP label in 1994 with some tracks remaining the same, but many discarded and their best parts combined into new tracks. Frank Zappa called that method "xenochrony," now people call it "mashup." Originally all bouncing was done between the four track and a stereo cassette deck, and for the reissue I upgraded to a borrowed DAT machine. The music here is from my preferred IMMP version of Dotlip, but with the original cover art edited to reflect the reissue's content. I liked some of the parts so much, a few that made it to the IMMP Dotlip made it to yet another piece, "Music on the Desert Road," which is on my second (or third) tape, Music of the Man 5,000 Years Ago (which was never released until now, digitally on Bandcamp).
