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.
“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.

C40, chrome quality in a first edition of 20 copies.
concept album by Patrizia Oliva.
Twelve new copies of Midori Hirano’s And I Am Here, a release I continue to like for the otherworldly tunes, its simplicity and its kindness. In the artwork you’ll find some quotes from previous editions. I tried to manufacture a cheaper edition, cheaper because of the used material.
They will be available at the staalplaat shop very soon, and at one of Midori’s performances. Or get in touch with her in person.
Slow Slow Loris visit some venues in the south east of Europe. Go see them if you are around. One of the souvenirs you can take home is their tape released by staaltape.
I have made eight new copies of Jeff Surak’s release.
It is an edition limited to eight, because I just want to see if these copies will sell. Staaltape is not a million seller.
You can get them from me at a price of 6.50€ ex shipping.
You can get them also from staalplaat, where they will be available at the beginning of March 2016.
