Cultura delle Musicassette

Cresciuti praticando cut & paste tra nastri di registrazione radiofoniche, album pirata e demo live. La cassetta ha fatto la storia!

Cassette culture, or the cassette underground,[1] refers to the practices surrounding amateur production and distribution of recorded music that emerged in the late 1970s via home-made audio cassettes.[2] It is characterized by the adoption of home-recording by independent artists, and involvement in ad-hoc self-distribution and promotion networks – primarily conducted through mail (though there were a few retail outlets, such as Rough Trade and Falling A in the UK) and fanzines.[3] The culture was in part an offshoot of the mail art movement of the 1970s and 1980s,[4] and participants engaged in tape trading in addition to traditional sales. The culture is related to the DIY ethic of punk, and encouraged musical eclecticism and diversity.[5]
