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.

Dear Concerned Employees will be released on 15. December 2018

At the end of the month October 2018 employees of the Duke Energy Building noticed a strange package. They were concerned about the content. It could be a dangerous packet. They called the police.

Read about it here

I sent a request to the artists that already contributed to the Kylie tapes:

My idea is to release a one copy only tape with your contributions.
(say 5 minutes max.)
You are free to send in what ever you like.
The idea, for me, is to comfort the concerned employees,
and give some insight in our approach to the medium ‘cassette.’
 
You can consider the tape that I will send as a tape in an answering machine.
The employee hits play, and listens to the messages.
Your contribution can be spoken word or a copied fragment of a relax tape,
the muzak you hear when you are put on hold, or something of your own creation.
 
I will pack and send the copy to
Concerned Employees
Duke Energy building 
550 S Tryon St, Charlotte,

I sent this copy

But the tracks that the artists contributed were too good to keep them for a one-copy-release.
Dear Concerned Employees is a c46, scheduled to be released on December 15, 2018.
You can preorder it now.
Tracks by Taco Bong, Kylie Minogue, KK, St_St, Sean Jason, Mrs. Mangle, El Tonto Bing Bang, The New Plastic People, Kim Wild 93
