Exhibit 119

[ Amsterdam, februari 3-4, 2011 -- play/download 🎶 🎧 ]


12/17/2010 14h30 Paris XX (France) - Rue du Commandant l'Herminier spot

Set of cassette tapes and a broken walkman dropped near dustbin. See photo. Almost all of them contained pop music of some sort or other. One of them was very interesting: one side filled with difficult to discern noisy diy experimental music (a performance or just 'fooling around'). The other side was mainly filled with the recording of a (French, but English singing) amateur rock band's rehearsing classics like 'Knocking on Heaven's Door'.

12/13/2010 17h Maastricht (the Netherlands) - Vendelplein spot

With the rubbish laying around the dustbins there was a Panasonic Easa-Phone telephone answering machine, with two cassettes (ee photo.) It used to belong to Roy and Bianca. For some reason the tape that should contain the messages, had one side filled with a (very low level) recording of all that went on inside the house, as if it were spying on Bianca ... :-)

11/26/2010 15h50 Eindhoven (the Netherlands) - Klokgebouw STRIJP-S

I picked up a small piece of tape that had fallen from a 'radiocassette player sculpture', that was on show in the smokers lounge during the K7 HISS event at the Eindhoven STRP Festival. See photos. On it: Dutch 'happy hardcore gabber': De Mosselman (late 1990s).

11/08/2010 12h55 Amsterdam (the Netherlands) - Quellijnstraat spot

On the little children's playground on the corner with the Gerard Doustraat. See photo. On the A-side of the tape there was The Beatles' album 'Abbey Road'; on the B-side Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's 'Déjà Vu'.

07/09/2010 12h55 Amsterdam (the Netherlands) - Stadionweg spot

On the corner with the Parnassusweg (see photo). Pop. Shazam recognized Billy Ocean's "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car", and "Cross My Broken Heart", by Sinita.

07/03/2010 18h40 Dibbersen (Allemagne) - Harburger Straße spot

On our way with A Table! to perform at the Schiphorst Avantgade Festival, we somewhat got lost around Hamburg. I saw this tape lying on a traffic island on the Harburger Straße, just before turning for the highway. On it: Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells... Read why that was such a strange & peculiar coincidence, in the SoundBlog...
