Third International Recorder Race 2006

Hartware MedienKunstVerein in the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund
Presented by FORMforte, Munich, in cooperation
with the HartwareMedienKunstVerein
Saturday, June 3, 2006, all day long

After the grand success of the races held in
Munich in 2003 and 2004, it's all happening again
in 2006 in sight of the Dortmund's
Westfalen-Stadion: screw on the wheels and off we
go, “fast forwarding" to the starting line,
driven by nothing but the motor that used to
spool magnetic tape.

No matter if it's the “Walkman" or the “Boombox
class", recorder racing is not just about speed.
A further important criterion in selecting the
“Weltrekorder 2006" is the quality of style,
design and performance of both the vehicle and
its team. To award points for this “overall
grandezza," there will again be a highly
competent “international top jury" of prominent
representative from the fields of design, art,
politics, and racing sports.

Born from the idea “How does one actually recycle
obsolete technologies?" this competition is a
racing sport event in which a growing number of
enthusiastic friends of recorder racing meet and
set up their fabulous racer, unbelievable
creativity and a real sporting spirit up against
one another.

So, why don’t you bring your old tape recorders
out of the basement, warm up your soldering gun,
and fast forward to the Recorder Race of 2006!

Final signup cut-off date: Friday, May 27th 2006
