The three editions of kantoor are sold out with me. The staalplaat shop in Berlin also sold all of their copies of Kantoor 1.
Kantoor was released in cooperation with Petrichor Uitgevers in Deventer, the Netherlands. On their website you can find a list of authors. There you will find some of the kantoor artists. The best way to buy a copy is to get in touch with them or with petrichor.
The preparations for the production of kantoor 4 haven’t started yet.
Released by ShanGORIL la Records in Singapore,
Keeping in mind the melodious approach of the label, I made a compilation of staaltape releases with a song structure. You can expect some earwurms on this compilation, and maybe the pop aspect will surprise you. The tracks on the tape were publsihed between 2010 and 2019.
My last copies of kantoor 2 are in these packets. If you want to get hold of kantoor 1, go to staalplaat, the shop. Jeroen Diepenmaat who took care of the zine production might have copies of all kantoor editions. Alternatively ask the artists who were involved in one of the three issues.

Here’s some more examples of packets I make for every order. The book and magazine I have used so far have finished, not a single page left. I was lucky to see a documentary on Joke Lanz and pick some film posters from the free poster basket at the entrance of the cinema. The black and white pieces are from a book on surrealist art which I also used for the cover of the pocket edition of the Paris Tape Run. (Where did I put that book?)
Work has started on a new release: Make Incest Great Again. It’s a C30 with eight tracks by the same artists that were involved with the Kylie Golden tapes and Dear Concerned Employees. I aim at getting the complete run of 40 copies out in the first days of February. All the sideA’s are dubbed so far.
Like modern day archeology, from the depths of our shared heritage some copies of various tape runs resurfaced, all untouched and still in their original package.
The tapes were dubbed and assembled at home, all are chrome quality.
The tapes are available at the Underbelly distro in Rotterdam, also on-line.
Montreal Tape Run was released in collaboration with crustacés tapes from Montreal. This is the staaltape version. Link MTR
In the picture you also see the tourist editions of Paris Tape Run 1 + 2 and Berlin Tape Run 1.

raw poetry, raw street recordings, raw cuts, lo-fi recorder, re-used commercial tape, sci-fi images, it all blends together in a 2×15 minutes mix. Beautiful? Let’s write that word on the mirror for other people to forget. This tape is not about beauty. This tape is full of scars. Let’s hope they don’t hurt anymore. But if they do, then please come in and listen. You might forget about the pain for a little while.
