NMATAPES

Ten issues of NMA Magazine were published from 1982-92. Each magazine was accompanied by a cassette featuring music documented in the magazine. These cassettes covered a varied cross-section of experimental, electronic and new music from Australia produced over this period. Rainer Linz of NMA Publications has granted permission to Shame File Music to make these tapes available as free downloads or on CDR. The last copies of the magazines are also available.
