Mixtape for a quiet evening

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | 1 Comment


Prepare a C-60 cassette. Chose the length of silences between the three tracks. It’s a gift. Your friend is just sitting alone in a room with a 30-minute a-side of an ancient cassette, waiting for the tracks to happen. You don’t even tell your friend what’s on it. Except that there’s a lot of tape hiss, silence, nothing – in between. There is no nothing when the mind works. Deliver it decoratively wrapped up, incl. Laura Barton’s mini essay!



1) Caetano Veloso: Noite De Hotel


2) Brubeck / Desmond: Koto Song (from the record THE DUETS)


3) Leonard Cohen: Chelsea Hotel #2
