Visions of Otherness / Pirates Declare War – an Homage to the vanishing world of the cd-r culture


Streaming kills music & I´m afraid, as well the beauty of self & handmade designed cd – r´s, artist released, not having a proper label, often sold on tour in editions of 50 ex. or even less, sometimes with handwritten artwork or with a note by the artist.

So here are two mixtapes (a long and a short one) with different tracks taken from some of my beloved releases  exclusively (or first time) on cd-r´s, mostly released in the early 2000s – rare treasures, you won’t find on shazam or spotify

Please write or post some of your favorite cd- r ´s in the comments if you like!
