Initially created to share information about analog tape recording on professional reel-to-reel tape machines, these days, every once in a while, is growing by pages dedicated to photography and travelogues about our journeys in Europe and elsewhere. You may find out yourself, and listen to Jazz classics on Radio Swiss Jazz while surfing on our pages.

By the time you read this . . .
we are back from a blissful vacation in Puglia in the very south of Italy. Busy days of sightseeing, relaxing leisure at the fabulous Masseria Palombara Resort, sun and sandy beaches and festivities in Oria - our program was diverse. We came to Puglia at exactly the right time to experience the Palio in Oria, a great medieval festival with magnificent processions in the streets of Oria and exciting contests among Oria's four districts, lasting three days. As soon as the sun has set, Oria's central Piazza and the narrow side streets nearby turn into a vibrant place for the young and the old to eat, drink and chat until late in the evening. This is Italy at its best!

Traveling is all about the experience, but capturing the experience on photographs is among the nicest things one can do when going on a journey - and we love it. And then there is also this on-going passion for recording Jazz on professional analog tape recorders, hence the name Capstan, which is that precision part of a tape recorder to keep audio tapes in perfect motion. Well, keep on movin' . . .

Oh, before I forget, is a Austria-based, private website.

So who's in charge?

Well, that's the three of us:
Joanna (creative director), Josefina (boss) and
Wolfgang (chief, cook & bottle washer)
