THE PLAN by ash

Our initial output is web-based, in reality that’d be a monthly 30 minute podcast and pdf mail-out (mini-zine-stylee).

Each month we record 5 tracks by 5 different artists, we also get 5 different pieces of art/illustration/design/drawing done by 5 different artists.

The podcast is then made up of us playing the 5 music tracks, we will also do a quick piece with each of the artists talking about their art. It’ll also feature a bit of us chatting and an interview with one or more of the bands.

The art is compiled into a sexy pdf and mailed out to those who sign up, it’s also available to download via the website, as are the separate music tracks (hopefully with a little video for each) and the little audio pieces with each artist.

After we have done a few of these podcasts (probably about 3 or 4) we would pick a select few, say 5 -8, tracks and some of the art and put together a cd and some kind of printed publication for release.

All these exciting goodies would then be showcased at a gig/exhibition somewhere suitably trendy.

It’s super- as the artists and musicians would have an opportunity to sell their prints or music or clothing at the exhibition, which you don’t really get when it’s only a zine or podcast.

If you are an artist or musician/band who is interested in getting involved then please send us an email: ash@tapes-online.co.uk. Ace!
