"Whenever I was creating music, I carried a portable cassette recorder along, and tried to capture any new ideas while they were still fresh in my mind. Some of the ideas later became songs, lots of them were just "of the moment". To keep them from disappearing, I transferred the cassettes to CD when that technology became available. And now through the miracle of the Internet, I have constructed this archive, all the ideas recorded at the time they were created. The recording quality is extremely variable, "real" background noise, tapes break, cassettes run out, some studio recordings, some sound-on-sound, some even without names. I have annotated them as best I could, and hope that they will be a source of inspiration for some musician trying to get in touch with his muse." - Rick Fischer
