review...
Created in a similar manner to the QSO release, the Region 5 project (which for some reason was named after Karlheinz Stockhausen's "Hymnen") pilfered fragments of obscure synthesizer recordings, library records, and occasionally some Casio keyboard sounds by ourselves. As we had a varispeed turntable, almost nothing was sampled at the right speed! Some of it was also looped, tape spliced, used backwards, etc. So, if you think you recognise something, it could be. Or maybe we used it because that's what it sounds like.
   Later, deciding some of what we had used was actually too obvious, we only selected the tracks asterisked above when compiling the Auricle Archive Region 5 release. So, no chance of us reissuing the actual cassette, as the Archive release adds up to the choice "best of" selection from both Region 5 releases.
