The Music Tapes is an experimental pop music project of Elephant 6 member Julian Koster, also of Neutral Milk Hotel, and the earlier Chocolate U.S.A.. Music Tapes releases are characterised by their unusual orchestration (the singing saw and banjo are matched with sounds recorded in Julian's environment, for example the sound of a bouncing ball as percussion), which produces an effect which is part musique concrÃ¨te, part 1960s pop. The band also includes such musical inventions as the 7-foot-tall metronome, Static the television (A Philco Predicta), the Clapping Hands Machine, and many other creations.
