Second Edition of Audiozine #3 – Valerie Kuehne

“I never had heard any other music of Valerie Kuehne, but she has a new follower!” says Johan Nederpel in Yeah, I know it sucks.

“She performs with great style,” says Frans De Waard in Vital Weekly #1032

“Sehr hoher Unterhaltungswert,” says DJ TDK aka Thomas Neumann in Hörerlebnis, Ausgabe 97

The second edition is now available at Miss Kuehne’s concerts, staalplaat and yours sincerely. Made in an edition of tewnty copies. Once this edition is sold out, a new one will be made. But don’t ask me when.

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.

Review of Three Cassettes by Ed Pinsent (The Sound Projector)

Half a year later he had found some time to write this beautiful review:

“These hand-made cassettes on the Staaltape label arrived from Rinus van Alebeek in a parcel 9th March 2012.( snip )All three of these tapes are real head-scratchers, instantly puzzling and almost confusing tracts of sonic information which do almost nothing to explain themselves, served up with Rinus’ hand-written notes on raggedy scraps of paper which are wrapped around the cassettes. The beetles of intrigue are already rolling their snowballs of golden dung across my mind, and the spiders of surprise are spinning their platinum webs.”
