the children of cathode ray: mantracks

A rare recording from Children of Cathode Ray, one of the earliest experimental sound art groups in the Philippines.

There was no documentation on this track but it was probably recorded between 1989 and 1990 at North Greenhills and/or Scout Area.

The recording was done bouncing 4-channel open reel and stereo cassette tapes several times, along with grounding exposed PL wires.

The last part of the track was what remain of the original tune that was recorded over on the stereo-channel master reel tape and accidentally retained it.

Children of Cathode Ray was established in 1989 with original members:
Tad Ermitano on video, visuals, bass, synthesizers, electronics, efx, computers;
Jing Garcia on audio, synthesizers, electronics, efx, computers;
Blums Borres on lead guitars, efx, graphics, computers;
Peter Marquez on lighting effects, electronics, photos and visuals;
Regiben Romana on percussions, efx;
Magyar Tuazon on visual effects, bass, electronics
