Ready to Go

I have a small amount of tapes at home. German shipping costs permit to send multiple tapes up to a weight of 500grams for 3.70€. This is worldwide. Unfortunately this also means that the shipping cost for 1 tape is 3.70.

I can’t offer discounts on an order of three or more tapes, because the price of the handmade releases (both Berlin Tape Runs, both K-tapes) is already at a low given the amount of time I need to produce one single tape.

But hey, why not give it a go
and try these packets

Six tapes/BTRpocket, shipping included 45,00 €


Six tapes/BTRDeLuxe – 52€ shipping included


Both Kylie’s plus BTRpocket – 29.50€ shipping included

Of course there are more combinations possible.
You can make your own combination, or get just one.

Berlin Tape Run – DeLuxe and Pocket Version, made at Cassette Culture Node Linz

In the last days of June 2018 I was a guest at the Cassette Culture Node Linz exhibition, organised by Wolfgang Dorninger. Instead of setting up a workshop and risk zero participants, I made perfect use of the work table in the exhibition space and produced 2×10 copies of the Berlin Tape Run. Berlin Tape Run was the first release by staaltape after a 15 years break. It was also my first production for staaltape.

Both versions are completely handmade and limited to ten numbered copies. I used flyers, magazines, glue, scissors, paint brushes and acryl paint in the process. The tapes were dubbed from a chrome BTR copy on a ferric transparent 40 minutes tape, played back by a Sony pro Walkman and recorded by a Marantz CP430. For complete info and track list see the page on the staaltape site.

BTR DeLuxe Germany, shipping included 19,00 €

BTR DeLuxe world, shipping included 20,00€

BTR pocket Germany, shipping included 11.50 €

BTR pocket world, shipping included 12,50€

If you can meet me in Berlin, or catch me on tour, the copies will be 16,00 € or 8,50 €

Both versions are shown in the pictures below. The content on the tapes is of course the same.

Girls on Tape

Jeff Surak visits Berlin. This means Girls on Tape appear before a live audience. In a basement in Berlin, packed to the very last seat (four) and piece of carpet (three by four meters), with people lining up at the door (three of them) and seated in the adjacent room (three more), the duo played various tape recorders and a cigar box machine to the delight of everyone. Adrian Shephard was there to record the show and make some pictures.

Deep Poland, available as ePub (or Mobi for Kindle)

Deep Poland is a book that combines aspects of essayistic and novelistic writing.

The first chapter, How to set up an Artist Residency in Calabria,
offers various views on how to understand or approach life in Calabria,
a region that has suffered since the Risorgimento, economically backward,
with a big influence of the ’Ndangretha, but at the same time of immense beauty.

After this long introduction the perspective moves to Poland.

Warsaw, the differences between the remains of the socialist era and the present-day consumerist remake, observations in the shopping centres, the German past in Silesia, an essay on noise, Dernburg and his modernist warehouse in Breslau, the post-war history of Breslau/Wroclàw, Deep Poland, Austria-Hungary, the bricks with the ashes from Auschwitz, Stockhausen and Hawking, in six chapters obscure facts get linked to observations, walks, bicycle rides, bus travels.

The main theme is how historic events just as easy as occurrences on a personal level become fiction, and, with time, disappear.

Meanwhile a lot of things can and will happen.

“Poland was the strangest country I had ever lived in. It looked like a giant stretch of land, without any notion of a border, a country acting out a sur place, inhabited by accidental people. Speaking to them was like trying to catch fairies. They all escaped. They returned to their language. It was the only thing that had kept the population alive all through the previous centuries, when the country was forever lost in history.

But then we arrived in Deep Poland.”
