Tarkatak - Eko (B.A.O.-UK-1997-c60)

Here is another release of this amazing tape label Biotope Art Organization, we have spoken about this label quite few a times in this blog, “Eko” seems to be one of the last releases by this tape-label. Tarkatak is the project of the German artist Lurs Pruditsch; who also was running the interesting tape label called Trummer Cassetten during the mid 90s. Tarkatak seems to be still active nowdays and has been collaborating with different artists during these years of activity: C.Reider, No, Anemone Tube, Deep, Klangwart. Eko was re-released on cd-r by the Italian label Blade Records in 2002 as a limited edition of 120 copies in a painted wood cover. I believe both the tape and the cd-r are quite difficult to find these days. The 4 tracks on this tape consist of a minimal sequencing trancelike music mixing quiet-noize and drone effects. Another small but precious gift for people into ambient for vegetative inner trips.

Track listing:

A Der Pilz Im Meer
B1 Lungenflügel
B2 Wäldlich
B3 Gehen - Umdgehen



  1. hey, nice to see here some tapes that I own too.
    Well, I am searching for a tape by Mount Elephant. It's pretty obscure and I just own two songs. It was distributed by Trümmer Kassetten back in mid 90ies. If you have this or know something about this, please drop me a line here. Would be great! Thanks. m.

  2. Hi Marcus
    i was in touch with Trummer kassetten labelback in the 90s,unfortunatly i haven`t got the tape by Mount Elephant,sorry-i will be interested to listen to it,good luck in your search...

  3. Well, I got these two tracks from a mixtape by Lutz back in the mid 90s. I contacted him again because it seems he is the only source for this :). But I lose contact. Need to write him again.
