I continue to be amazed at how much great microcassette audio art is coming from Florida! Recorded in and around his home and neighborwoods in an area of Jacksonville characterized by unique folk architecture, "Gates For M.O.M.A." is a personal collage tape that takes us into Kevin's sound world - acoustic guitar improvisations with a blues-folk kind of John Fahey sound, small incidental sounds of daily life, the voices of loved ones, animals, jaw harp, and much more - all punctuated with the stop and start clicks and idiosyncratic squeenk sound of Kevin's microcassette recorder pausing. This tape shows how microcassette can admirably capture/document the archaeology of the present moment. This certainly ranks among my Top 10 personal favorite MOMA tapes.
