Dan Joseph - MORPHEUS, C-60 cassette,
Self-released, Washington, DC, 1987

Morpheus is a work of ambient-industrial electro-acoustic tape music composed in the late 1980s. It is the first in a three-part series of long-form home-studio works that were released in quick succession. Morpheus was made on a Tascam 244 cassette four-track with synthesizers, electric guitars, field recordings, found sounds, piano, and cello.

Morpheus circulated in international cassette underground networks via artist-run distributors and stores such as Staalplaat (Amsterdam), The Generator (NYC) Sound of Pig (Long Island, NY), Front d'lest (France), and through artist-to-artist mail exchange.

Now also available (2015) in a remastered CD edition from Forced Nostalgia: forcednostalgia.bandcamp.com/album/morpheus


released January 11, 1987
