The Flavin Mix

Like every other global investment firm, Deutsche Bank makes markets in weird stuff. I know this first hand. A couple years ago, I did a project for a business unit of theirs that trades the weather.

But today I came across something Deutsche Bank is selling that I'll bet none of their competitors are: a genuine Dan Flavin mix tape. Here are the details:
In 1993, the extension to the Städel-Museum in Frankfurt opened with an exhibition of Dan Flavin’s work. The artist organised the evening of the opening so that he would enjoy it as much as possible. Flavin had a cassette of songs sung by Richard Tauber play continuously throughout the evening. Romantic tones blended with the rooms flooded with colour to create a poetic experience. The CD includes Richard Tauber’s interpretation of “Dein ist mein ganzes Herz”, which the artist is known to have considered a favorite of his, along with remixes of this piece by Antonelli Electr and Elektro Music Department.
Burned to CD and hand numbered in an edition of 1000, Flavin's favorites can be yours for only €12.50--or approximately $125 at the current Euro to Dollar exchange rate.
