Various Artists - Montréal Tape Run
Thanks to Rinus Alebeek of Staaltape, The concept of the “tape estafette-compilations” was extended to Montréal, bringing together some great experimental musicians from Québec. Montréal Tape Run was organised and curated by Anne-F Jacques. The ten runners managed to finish the tape in a period of two weeks!
For the packaging some confetti and a shiny red metallish sheet was used, tied together with a red silk ribbon. Every tape comes with a folded colour copy with liner notes and a picture of Martin Tétreault handing over the tape to Nicolas Dion in a bar.
The running order and track list include individual notes of each artist involved.
