I had the idea years ago. The C60 The Last Day on Earth had to become the follow-up of The Four Corners of the Night. I asked four artists. Each artist got a different score. The score was either a short story or a kind of poem. I never got four satisfying contributions in return. Two pieces were in line with the concept. I thought that I could use those two compositions, some fragments from the others and create an audio-book. My ambition was obstructed by reality. I put the release on hold for a long time.

The first copies of Ben Roberts – Unit Audio and Midori Hirano/Kris Limbach split – The Last Day on Earth are already sold. I still need to do some time-consuming work to update all the pages and give you as much information as possible.
However, you can get in touch through Fb or by contacting me via staaltape at staalplaat com if you are interested in buying one of these or both releases.
“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

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.
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.
