Friends of Christopher Reimer, the guitarist for the Canadian post-punk band Women who died in his sleep February 21st, have made available The Chad Tape, a collection of music Reimer was working on before his death, Pitchfork reports.
The Chad Tape comprises tracks Reimer had completed for a solo project of ambient music, which fellow Calgary musician Chad Van Gaalen had offered to release.
Although the project remains incomplete, Reimer's friends assembled the songs and are planning a posthumous cassette release, complete with artwork and writing from Reimer himself. While there will be a limited number of cassettes released, the music is also available to stream and purchase digitally on Bandcamp.
Proceeds from The Chad Tape will go to the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund, which helps provide children with scholarships in music and dance education.
