Topo Copy & Cosy Cozy joined forces for a series of musical library experiences. For each session musicians were invited to play adapted library music – live, from an isolated adjoining room – for approximately one hour, while the audience could discover an extraordinary collection of printed art. The record brings excerpts from each set: Inne Eysermans — Témé Tan — IJ — Jozef Dumoulin — Kapotski.
The 12″ records were pressed in a limited edition run of 250 at 125 gr. white vinyl with an accompanying gatefold cover. The Shelf Library is a growing collection and ongoing expo of printed art. Topo Copy has a unique collection of self-published (fan-)zines, limited edition printed art(-books) and independent publications, with contributions from around the globe. The Shelf Library functions as an expo, one you can touch. Topo Copy is an ‘openlab-research-center’ for print, zines, paper, copy, ink and art. They also have a self-publishing label and (zine-)library alongside activities such as workshops, lectures, interventions and exhibitions. They run an ‘open atelier’ with machines for creation, using ink and paper printing with Risography. Cosy Cozy is a duo seeking ways to bring music to people in a cosy atmosphere. Cosy Cozy plays vinyl, curates and organizes. Partners in crime and friends for life: Kurt Stockman & Jonas Nachtergaele.
