The Farm Tapes Series features demos, finished recordings and sonic experiments recorded between 1985 and 2001 by Todd Parker (and whoever else was participating) with the only requirement being that the recordings were produced on a cassette 4-track machine. A Fostex X-15 was used until 1989 and from then on a Yamaha MT3X was the primary recorder.

Volume 3 - Kite/Parker NYC

Volume 3 of the series features original demos recorded by Michael Kite and me in New York City, where we lived, between 1990-1993. All songs in this volume were started with Michael performing and recording a drum track. Michael had no idea what I would be doing musically with the drum tracks, yet he would compose an arrangement of differing sections of the song structure, which I used to build a song around in many cases. Sometimes I had a part and the drum track partially fit and I might write something over sections that didn’t fit. We would end up going back and re-doing them in rehearsal and further demos, and many eventually were recorded in 24 track studios for release on Tadpoles’ albums.
