Girls on Tape – Live at Noiseberg, Berlin

Girls on Tape is the collaborative moment between Jeff Surak and Rinus Van Alebeek. Whenever they meet there will be an opportunity to play live. This recording shows them in concert at Noiseberg in Berlin. No amplification, just plain use of various walkmen and their tapes they played an energetic set before a live audience. Adrian Shephard was there to record the show and take some pictures. Ed Pinsent says: “Two craftsmen arranging chaotic elements with care and deliberation, yet managing to do it in a live setting, which requires…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin

I moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony Walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. In the fifth letter from Berlin I visited Miss Read in Haus Kulturen der Welt. Before I arrived I made a beuatiful bicycle ride that took me right to the heart of Berlin. Short interviews…

Zine-ism, Interview with Nina Prader and John Z Komurki

  Nina Prader runs Lady Liberty Press. John Z Komurki, among other things, has written a book, called Stationery Fever. Both, now residents of Berlin, care for printed matter and a lot of things that come with it. You think it is boring to talk about pencils? Wait until you hear John bring in stories about John Steinbeck, Napoleon and Freud. And after the pencils are sharpened, the conversation takes us to the zine. Who, why, why not, where, what and what else. Digital versus analogue. The tactile and the…

Rinus Van Alebeek – Letter from Berlin

I moved back to Berlin in the month of February 2018. The audio reports that I started in Poland will continue, albeit in a different form. I will still use my Sony Walkman, walk and talk, observe, think aloud and allow snippets of every day life to land on the surface of the magnetic tape. In the fourth letter from Berlin I visit the opening night of the exhibition The Superusers – Mega Myriad Machine. I spoke with Scott Sinclair who is one of the Super Users and recorded his concert….

On Sunday 11. March Ludovica Avetrani connected to Radio On. She was in Rome, in her studio, and she was ready to dance. Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek were at the Radio On studio in Berlin.

Other visitors arrived through her instagram account, and watched her dance in the palm of their hands. The sounds got recorded.   The dance will go on.    …

Interview with Fillipp Vingerhoets

Fillipp Vingerhoets is one of the persons involved with Bohemian Drips. That’s the first thing you will hear in the interview that Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek conducted with the young Bavarian. A needle injecting a bonbon with strange drops, tiled secret bunkers, playing undanceable music to danceable people, Berlin in the middle of the night, sounds in space or sounds in castles, Turks on the run and alarming goat stories. It is all in this two hour interview. Plus more. Tracks are played from the vinyl that Fillipp…
