The great success of the project is that it actually sounds like a dream-in-sound

Review of Patrizia Oliva – Numen on Continuo’s Documents.

One copy of the first edition is still available at the staalplaat shop in Berlin, also for postal orders. If this one has sold out, there are copies from the second edition. And if those sell out, I will need to produce a third edition.

“Ganz grosses Kino,” Thomas Neumann in Hörerlebnis 097 (physical copy).

you don’t get this exceptionally high degree of uncut humanity and honesty captured on tape every day

Second Edition of Patrizia Oliva – Numen is now available

Twenty more copies are made of Patrizia Oliva’s Numen in a second edition. I went to the banks of the river Vistula in Warsaw to do the spraying, together with Anna Wójtowicz. For the wrapping I re-used big posters that announced Komuna // Warsawa’s theater productions. The liner notes are printed on 120gr or 150gr paper.

The copies can be bought at staalplaat or directly from Patrizia Oliva.

Audiozine #3 – Valerie Kuehne

“Valerie I’d like to release a tape of your works on staaltape” – “Great.” somehow didn’t work out. So one day while going through her songs for a far away future conceptual release for staaltape, I got the idea to surprise her with a selection I made. She gave me carte blanche to go on as I thought was right.

The result is that this is not a tape by Valerie, but a tape by me, for which I used her songs and other appearances. I compiled and structured it and in doing so I created a portrait of Valerie Kuehne. Hence, an audiozine, says the editor.

I won’t make a teaser for this album. I even hesitate to publish the song titles. It would spoil too much of your pleasure. You can pre-order directly from Valerie, or from me. There are 13 copies available.
