Brooklyn-based photographer Ebru Yildiz emerged from Death by Audio and into the crisp night of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The Worst Demo Tape Compilation in the World – Ever

In the late 1980′s, my cousin gave me a cassette that instantly became an obsession of mine. It was a tape, compiled by a UK record company – and made purely for internal use – featuring the worst songs they’d ever been sent from the thousands of demo tapes they received each year.
