Decibel Garden Studio to host open house for Time Capsule master reels this Saturday

A few months ago, we wrote about the Time Capsule master reels that were discovered when the iconic Denver studio went into foreclosure. Thanks to the foresight of Martin Anderson and the graciousness of Decibel Garden Studio, who agreed to serve as custodians of the reels, the tapes were salvaged. At the end of May, Decibel Garden took possession of the tapes and began the arduous and unenviable process of cataloging everything for reclamation.

The studio put together a page on it site dedicated to the Time Capsule tapes, with specific details on retrieval, along with the full inventory. A cavalcade of musicians have responded since then, and this Saturday, from 4 p.m. to midnight, the studio is hosting an open house in which bands can stop by and pick up the tapes if they choose or continue to store them for free at Decibel Gardens. The studio has also acquired a 24-track reel-to-reel machine, where the tapes can be strung up to see if the audio is intact on them.
