After a long preparation, my big studio album Duets is done! The songs are composed and arranged. The singers are viciously skilled. The whole material is recorded, mixed and mastered. Cover art and design is juicy and ready. The only thing left now is to print it on vinyl. And you can help me make it happen!
Turbo Comix is a Belgrade-based association run by the collective Matrijaršija (pronounced mah-tree-yar-shiya).
The activities that take place in the autonomous cultural center Matrijaršija since 2014 include work on its annual program (both exhibitions and performances), non-aligned comix festival Novo Doba, the artist-in-residence program, and non-stop activities in several of its studios and workshops: screen printing, graphics and music.
Matrijaršija is based on constant and fruitful collaborations with other collectives, artists and numerous friends and it represents a materialization of a much larger network of production that spreads across Belgrade, Serbia, the whole region, Europe and beyond.
I am part of the collective Matrijaršija which organizes among many things the festival Novo Doba that has been following Lenhart Tapes since its very beginning. I also designed the cover of this album.
I am an ethnomuiscologist and a musician and occasionally people ask me to write about music. Lenhart Tapes is my favorite man-band.
I have been a passionate collector of audio cassettes for a very long time. Field recordings, rare folk music, spoken word and sound propaganda material, various musical genre albums – you name it, I probably have it. Before I ventured into my solo project, I was playing music in various underground music bands in Serbia. And then, in October 2010 Lenhart Tapes was born. Lenhart Tapes is a one-man-cassette-tape-manipulator-storm and I have been touring and performing all over the map. Using walkmans as musical instruments I do a live mix od selected material from my cassette collection on top of the original rythmic loops.
Milica Ivić, part of the Matrijaršija/Novo Doba crew that stands with and behing this project. As a programer and organizer of festivals and events, has been collaborating with Lenhart Tapes all over Belgrade, Serbia and Europe. A Lenhart Tapes fan.
I'm a cook with a book and evil look. I'm here to stay if I may until you pay and I'll go away. Hurray.
