The label is the legendary audiofile Tapes:New York industrial/experimental/electronic label run by Carl Howard and active since the mid-1980s. Now defunct.
I already posted quite few tapes by this very good label.
Enjoy it,this is a great tape of absurd experiments with various instruments reminding me a lots of strange passages of the cassette culture scene of the 80s.
