about

This was made during my last week of work at a print shop/mail room. Recorded with Lom mikroUši Pro's and a MixPre-6 with minimal editing.

"Mail Room may be the idealized sonogram of a short career, but it’s also a pristine aural memory, a snapshot that works like a tattoo without the pain. While playing the EP, I wistfully recall a job I once hated, remembering the joyful times as well: the fluid dynamics of the machine and the interactions with coworkers at lunch hour. But in the years to come, Mail Room may also become a valuable sonic document, as technologies are replaced and someone asks, “Did anyone think to record the copier?” By preserving these lulling, hypnotic rhythms, Fike underlines the often-overlooked beauty of the monotonous." - Richard Allen, A Closer Listen
