Wendy Carlos is the performer who produced "Switched-On Bach", the
soundtrack for "A Clockwork Orange", "Sonic Seasonings", and a bunch
other amazing recordings created on single-voice Moog synthesizers, using
multi-track tape recorders equipped with the sound-with-sound feature, to
build upwards of dozens of simultaneous chords and parts.

I ran across a reference to this on FB. It appears to
be from 2008, so
may be well known or obsolete material.
The other interesting info at the end of the article is the contact name
and info about someone who restores or works on tape heads.
Might be interesting to at least contact and ask if he's still around
Contact John French, at JRF Magnetic Sciences (973-579-5773) for further
details on magnetic tape head restoration and storage, and other related
services and products.
FB page with the info.
The fellow who does a lot of tape recorder (reel to reel) repair has a
FB group worth dropping in on. This is the link to a photo with a
pretty bad Ampex head.
