    A Film by The Human Aerial & Sen Na. A Chance to Witness Reducers Visceral & Stunning Original Cut up Video, made by The Human Aerial, which was the Bands Stage Lighting & on Stage Video Show from 1985.

    Featuring a New Soundtrack Featuring Contemporaneous Recordings by The Human Aerial.

    This is a Restored & Post Produced Cut up Video (physically recording & stopping, then rewinding and repeat, ad nauseum!) that I made between 1982 & 1985 & was used as Reducer's Projected Stage/Light Show & on Stage TV Show until 1990. For the soundtrack, I've used Original 80's Cassette Recordings of ideas I had when I was making it - including Me Drumming from an 38 year old audio Master Cassette Tape of the Band of Mercy - played at half speed. My ambition back then was to eventually release it as a Film & thus I wrote several contemporaneous other pieces, such as the Synth riffs, to run alongside. I chose to use the quote of Smohalla, Chief of the Wanapum, as the spoken word - as it sums up the white western Destruction & Disrespect of the Earth & its Indigenous Peoples, and the Recycling of life & Death, Things that are Close to the Heart of Reducer & Myself. The voice & the wolves were recorded from a then, highly unusual to be broadcast on mainstream TV documentary, called "Walking in a Sacred Manner" made by 1st Nations plains Tribes such as the Oglala Sioux & Wanapum, from around 1982. The Thunder is from a Storm outside a flat I shared with Reducer Bassman Dave, circa 1984.

    Video Cassette "recorders" were in those days, huge, heavy, clunky mechanised things, with big "press down hard" mechanical buttons, so trying to get a quick edit became a real skill. I had fingers like Popeye's arms! It took me a Very long time to get enough good clips and money together to get another VCR so I could start making loops or repeated edits - same as with audio - it is immensely time consuming, relentless, and on the fringe of psychosis let alone mental exhaustion, to listen to and or watch the same thing over & over, every few seconds, for days and weeks on end. The VHS Cassette sat in its box for 30 years or so till I had it restored and then only 40 minutes had made it through the Degradation Process of Video Tape, but again, Typically Reducer, it's a Perfect 40 minute Distillation of the Original, Skilfully and Lovingly Post Produced by the Truly Gifted Sen Na, to Render it a Cohesive Film for Release.

    There have been some Very Special Moments in Making this Project come to Fruition. One such was a picture Lester RIP gave me for the Website 5 years ago, when I 1st started it, saying "This needs to be used at some point" & of course, This is that point! Utterly Brilliant as the closing image of the Film and it is the only new image in it - Classic Reducer - All about Serendipity- Improvisation- Spontaneity- Alchemy - Passion and Grim Determination! This is literally, a Hand Made Film, No Cameras, just Me, My Wits, 3 or 4 tv stations & 2 VHS Recorders...The Equipment it took to make the Video would have weighed in at over 10kg - The Technique Took 3 years - Today you can do it on your phone in Minutes - This is a Work of Love, Skill and Dedication, that Exactly Because of its Origins is More Relevant Today Than Ever.

    In keeping with the Film's Creative Process and to stay True to our Roots, We have chosen to Present the USB in a Hand Made, Folded and Printed Box (using repurposed excess Reducer Product 12" ep sleeves) & Mini VHS Slip Case. This lovingly handcrafted packaging was Produced by Euan Harries - Craftsman. This is real art, from the 1st image recorded 40 years ago through to the box you can purchase it in, made in the last few weeks.

This cassette is a re release of a 2 track cassette Reducer gave away to the 1st 23 punters through the door at our 2nd gig in 1985. We have added 2 other tracks from the same recording session because we are lovely people who wish to share enlightenment. Other than that this cassette appears as it did back then.

At the beginning of Reducer we had no equipment of our own, so used what was available in the "back room" 4 track cassette recording home studios, we could just afford. These 4 tracks are the first ever recorded by Reducer - the then 3 members all playing the same synthesizer at the same time whilst tape loops ran alongside, and/or one of us playing bells & flutes, whilst the other two played the synth, all tracks are recorded live with no overdubs. This simple but extremely effective way of getting an un rehearsed spontaneity into our work proved to us we had an understanding & empathy that would go on to become the fully fledged Reducer.

All Tracks Recorded 1985.
All Tracks Written & Performed by Reducer.
