Initially created to share information about audio tape recording on 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. Despite the drastic changes the music industry has undergone since the start of the new millennium, analogue audio tape recording has remained alive as a unique recording format for enthusiasts and some professionals and keeps its prominent place on our website. Find out if this melange of things is made for you and listen to Jazz classics on Radio Swiss Jazz while surfing on our pages.

By the time you read this . . .
we've set out in the recent few years for getaways within Austria to see regions we've never visited before. Our travel destinations have truly surprised us and more than ever before we've learned to appreciate the beauty of our homeland, its people living in the various provinces, their customs and traditions. Our last trip abroad was back in late summer 2019 to the gorgeous island of Sicily. It is about time to make new plans for journeys in Europe or someplace else.

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 still 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 perfectly consistent motion.
Well, keep on movin' . . .

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)
