shadowtrash tape group is an audio-art cassette label situated in boulder colorado.
operated by a small group of interdisciplinary artists, the label functions as a container for an ongoing sonic collaboration between them and artists regionally to internationally.
this work is produced and trafficked through various networks of individuals and venues, as a method of sharing content outside of the algorithmically surveilled structures of web-based social networking, music streaming sites, government and licensing agencies, the recording industry, and the overlap of these devices.
seeking compositions that haven't been found yet, or the re-imagining/hijaking of known forms for new purposes--shadowtrash feeds on the waste of audio society. collected sound is our alchemical shit, tapes are our encryption tools. we want to build a collaborative library of archived, auditory exploration.
