"Contemporary photography meets Ware. Which came first? The chicken or the booklet? In this case definitely the latter, but on closer inspection: none of the two. Because the Tape10 booklet is really a catalogue. It all began with the following idea: Rui Camilo and Ren+ Herzer started a gallery for contemporary photography in XXL sizes. Only the best photographers are asked to produce exclusive images for Tape10. The Frankfurt-based team position their work somewhere between service and art, and this is reflected in their prices. They have made a conscious decision to opt out of the general art award rat race. To support and kickstart the idea, they decided to put the pictures to music. A label was soon found: Ware carries its ethos on its sleeve and in its name, a premise close to the Tape10 collective's heart. The CD booklet shows all photographs, stating size and photographer -- just like a proper catalogue. Ware now chose 10 musicians to create exclusive tracks inspired by the motifs -- not aiming for the dancefloor, but drifting in the eclectic no-man's-land between ambient and electronic listening. The catalogue has been given a sound." Artists: Markus Güntner, Laub, Benjamin Brunn, Decomposed Subsonic, Schmidt & Herze, Jeremy P. Caulfield, Midinovela, Mathias Schaffhäuser, Losoul, and Geoff White.
