In anticipation of International Cassette Store Day (September 7th), here’s a short documentary about a man named Micke from Stockholm-based collective Filibuster. This is The Magnetist.
Most of Micke’s time is spent on varius tape-related projects; he blogs about them, he makes music with them and he got a monthly tape club in his hometown Stockholm. Sometimes it’s a struggle. Here we get an insight to Micke’s life as a tapeologist and joins him to his tape-only club to find out the motivation behind his interest.
See Micke find the obscure and rare tapes, “lovingly crafts playlists for sparsely attended parties” and create magnetically-modified cassettes.
I’m in love with Micke.
