Uitgeverij Petrichor is a small independent publishing house in Deventer, in the east of the Netherlands. K A N T O O R, staaltape’s new series of releases on found tapes and found sounds collectors will be published together with a zine. Petrichor takes care of the zine. Well, they are taking care, right now.
The first copies of the upcoming release of K A N T O O R, the first in a series dedicated to found sounds and their collectors, are almost ready to be shipped. Destination Deventer, where the independent publishing house Petrichor will attach the tape to the zine.
You might become the proud owner of one of these tapes. The zines will all look the same of course. More on the content of both tape and zine will follow.
The production marathon started during my residency in Linz, at the cassette culture node.Linz exhibition, organised and narrated by Wolfgang Dorninger. I produced the new versions of the Berlin Tape Run. Paris Tape Run, June Crawford’s tape and Dear Concerned Employees followed.
At this moment I’m in the middle of the production process of K A N T O O R, the first issue of a tape and zine with found sounds, compiled by found sounds collectors. The release is a collaboration with Petrichor, a small independent publishing house in Deventer, in the east of the Netherlands. We aim to have the first copies available at the beginning of February.
Meanwhile in Berlin, the staaltape releases in the staalplaat store slowly start to grow in numbers. If you are on a visit, or living in the fair city of Berlin, just walk in every now and then, marvel at all the zines, posters, albums, books and tapes on display, and see if there’s something you would like to take home or give to a friend.
The production marathon continues in 2019. Thirty copies C90, heavy chrome quality of the 1990s, side A is ready. The release is a collaboration with #Petrichor, a small publishing house in Deventer. They will take care of the zine. There are still a couple of words to be written and added. There are also still some sounds that need to cover the B-sides.
Now in production, the first issue of KANTOOR, a series of releases dedicated to found sounds and their collectors. The release is a collaboration with the Dutch art book publishing house Petrichor. They will take care of the zine that will be published together with a C90. For the first issue cassettes from the 1990s of chrome and metal quality will be re-used. Sounds, words and images are by Jeroen Diepenmaat, Wassily Bosch, Ezio Piermattei and Ben Roberts. We hope to release the first KANTOOR in the first week of February.
Here’s an overview of staaltape releases that are sold out and new ones. The collection of new releases will grow this year. Visit @staalplaat when you’re in Berlin, or visit the website and see if there’s something you like.
