music for tape, ice, and hot water...

tapeice

an image from the feb. 1958 issue of radio and tv news, illustrating a method of testing the quality of audio tape by running it over a block of ice, through the deck, into some boiling water, and back... one can only dream of the lush beautiful tone poem this might have produced...

i wonder truly, what kind of 'music' did it make, if at all...was it really tested back then? or we ought to only dream of how it might have sound like?
