Staaltape’s Audiozine#1 is called Glenn Branca

Image

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!

D I K T A T in the New World of Love

20120810-123256.jpg

September 26th – October 3rd 2012, D I K T A T will be performing – inside/outside – in Allentown, Washington & New York, meanwhile recording material for a limited edition documentary pocket tape audiozine cassette-only release on STAALTAPE.

We will use the proceedings of this ‘live inside/outside Berlin’ digital album release to cover the costs of the band’s stay in the US: car rental, gasoline, toll, parking tickets, (for me please no) hamburgers, beer, et cetera…

Needless to say that any amount will earn you a cheer; throw in €15 or more, and we’ll send you a copy of the Diktat overseas STAALTAPE release for *free*, as soon as it is available. (Also: in case of more than twenty tape-meriting donations, the cassette will NOT go on sale. It’ll be produced for your ears only …)

Staaltape Release: Groetjes uit Brussel

Page with Full Information

“When I heard the result of Groetjes uit Brussel, I sensed that it was very close to the concept of an AudioZine. What you hear on this tape is an ever-changing tale not only of four people who live in the same city, but also a collective work of art that documents a part of their lives . All four of them have managed to visualize a Brussels through their miniatures. If you follow the storyline, you will encounter a narrator, who is not always aware of the dreams and visions that surround him. Maybe he or she can hear them, intuit them, just as much as the listener to this tape can perceive what it is to live in Brussels at the beginning of the second decade of the twenty-first century.”

15 November: Peter Cusack – Lloyd Dunn – DJ Pato

The last evening at the Rote Salon for us. This edition we have invited Peter Cusack and Lloyd Dunn, two sound artists who are firmly rooted in the last century, and both have arrived at the use of field recordings in a very special way. While Lloyd Dunn’s method is one of collage and carefully composing, (listen to his fantastic filecasts on Nula) Peter Cusack combines the act of story telling with his recordings.

DJ Pato, our resident DJ, is world famous in Berlin. Just lean back and listen, or keep on talking. You will be surprised, and delighted.

Monday 15 November, 21.00 hours
