Re: open reel deck looping?

One of the definitive books to pick up is 
"Tape Music Composition"(1980), by David 
Keane. It's out of print but can be found online 
through various Out Of Print services. That's 
how I got mine. :) Try bookfinder.com and others.
even Barnes and Noble has a good OOP section.

The book covers the nuts and bolts of composition 
using reel-to-reel tape recorders, explains techniques
of sound generation, recording, editing, splicing, 
sound manipulation, looping (of course) and setting 
up your own tape music studio. Good chapters on 
analog synths and musique concrete, too!

I found it very refreshing to read a music-related 
book that did not mention digital synths, MIDI, or 
traditional composition.

Highly recommended.
