For the follow up to their sold-out 2022 album ‘Stylophonik’, also on Spun Out Of Control, inspired student and tutor collective Kingston University Stylophone Orchestra return to the campus’ Visconti Studio to lay down a collection of contemporary synth and electro pop classics – live to analogue tape.

Live To Tape At Visconti Studio mixes contemporary covers such as Brian Eno’s Who Gives A Thought, with bygone era bangers including Kraftwerk’s The Robots, David Bowie’s Space Oddity and Tubeway Army’s Are ‘Friends’ Electric?

It even nods to the world of sci-fi film & TV soundtracks with pocket synth-infused interpretations of Blade Runner’s End Titles and the Doctor Who Theme, with accomplished all-new arrangements by Stylophone Orchestra leader Leah Kardos.

An experience that puts the listener in the room with the performers and a small invited audience as they’re recording, this release is the Orchestra at their most immediate and accessible.

Released on Spun Out Of Control as a choice of two limited cassette tapes – choose from Synth Cape Purple or a bubblegum blue and pink split ‘Stylophonik’ shell – the artwork for Live To Tape At Visconti Studio is by series regular Eric Adrian Lee, with specially mastered audio for cassette & digital release by Antony Ryan.
