Cassette Release with Legowelt
15:00 - 15:45
De Brakke Grond | Nes 45, Amsterdam
The cassette tape is probably the ultimate Do-It-Yourself music format to release on, or at least it used to be back in the analog days. It initiated an independent homegrown amateur music culture that operated outside the normal big labels and distribution channels far before the dawn of the internet and digital music distribution. For the first time people could start their own label, record and release music for next to nothing financially in their own bedroom. In recent years the cassette tape has made a comeback - even though it is a bit of a mysterious ancient relic for people that didn't grow up with it. During this workshop Legowelt will show that there is nothing to be afraid of when it comes to cassette tape culture. He will explain how to produce your own cassette release with just a tapedeck, computer, some paper and a bunch of cassettes - showing and explaining everything in the process from acquiring a tapedeck, brainstorming titles and track names, making the artwork, designing inlays to copying the cassettes themselves and distributing them.
