REEL2REEL is a playlist of videos of the Begemotion Studio channel on Youtube. The playlist is dedicated to the early records made on the studio in the 1980's. I tell stories that happened behind the studio sessions, I play back old master and studio tapes. I speak about gear, equipment, old stuff and people who were involved into music making in my room. Drawing lines that not divide but tie together different periods in history is an interesting project as well as teaching us how to deal with similar situations in the nowadays life.
