The cassette comes in a custom made cardboard package with X-Ray pictures on the front and back side. The inlay is a high quality color print, plus a written piece of paper with the basic liner notes. Every copy has a different X-ray.
Price 8.00 Euro, available through staaltape at staalplaat.com or directly from the shop.
In how far this is an Audiozine, is of course to be judged by the listener. It was my intention to combine elements of essay-writing, travelogues, documentary and, in this case, docu-fiction.
If to some of you it still sounds like music, well, then let it sound like music!
Again an edition of 18 copies. As from now available through staaltape at staalplaat.com , at the store and pretty soon from the artist himself.
Also this time, cover and copying is handmade and done at home.

“And even if the snow is only the one of some old radio left turned on, programs are over for a long time now, objects took control over our sleepy world.”
Read the complete review by Flavien Gillié on The Field Reporter. I just had to add a comment, to explain why there is no digital files available alongside with the releases by Staaltape.
