Lustrum non publicum - "Five years stuck on my eyes"

[November 2, 2018 | #484]
On Thursday October 18th FlexRex's Daicar brought us to Bures-sur-Yvette, a greenish Parisian suburb, just a little to the south of the capital. There we celebrated five years of unPublic with a 56th edition, featuring Paula Velez, FlexRex, Yoko Miura, Yungwei Chen, Rebus and me.

T'obsolete or not t'obsolete ... [iv]

[September 1, 2018 | #483]
The fourth episode of "t'Obsolete or not t'Obsolete" looks back upon this summer's Vieux Media Fest at La Generale Nord-Est -where the 16th century theorbo played along 20th century Frippertronics: where a virtual anchor was thrown over from the Cassette Culture Node.Linz exhibition; where we read yellowed 80 year old headlines that - almost - could've been written today and where crashingly crazy things happened when Japanese DIY underground hero Yximalloo came flying over, straight in from Tokyo ...

Rage, rafts and refugees

[August 13, 2018 | #481]
Michael Ghent's cardboard sculpture "Derive" consists in a faithful 3-dimensional rendition of the famous accusing and political "Raft of the Medusa", a monumental early 19th century painting by French Romantic star painter Theodore Gericault. This winter "Derive" was on view for eight days at the Parisian Generale Nord-Est. In this richly illustrated report, see and read all about it, and about the music and sounds that we unfolded around it... with ETC, with Diktat, in public, and unPublicly.

T'obsolete or not t'obsolete ... [iii]

[August 10, 2018 | #480]
The SB-entries "T'obsolete or not t'obsolete" are sort of private RAM dumps concerning the yearly Vieux Media Fests and some related events at La Generale, Paris. The 3rd talks quite a bit about the 45th unPublic, which came to sort of being hijacked by the actors who - during the 2017 Vieux Media Fest days - were working on a 1929 theatre play by Paul Claudel, a 'love story dominated by the ideas of sin and redemption' that is only rarely staged, mainly because of its extreme length...

[July 21, 2018 | #479]
The SB-entries "T'obsolete or not t'obsolete" are sort of private RAM dumps concerning the yearly Vieux Media Fests and some related events at La Generale, Paris. The 2nd includes some 'French theory' that -interestingly- we might almost call... uP-ish.

Between now and then, nine years from here ...

[May 26, 2018 | #478]
On the occasion of the wrapping-up of a second year summarised in a kaleidoscopic string of three hundred and sixty-five ten second sonic cuts of words spoken, snippets of music played or heard, and of all the other sounds and noises as they then resounded day in day out around me, each of the series now is available as a digital album that can be streamed and/or downloaded at Bandcamp 's: Seventy Seconds (2011) and 2M0MX1VII (2017).

Nicolas Collins - 2 april 2016, La Generale, Paris

[August 4, 2016 | #469]
A pretty much complete transcription of the audio recording of (mainly) Emmanuel Rebus and (a little bit) myself interviewing American composer Nicolas Collins (a student of Alvin Lucier's, circuit bender, bricoleur, early adopter of personal computers in live performances, in the 1990's visiting artistic director of STEIM in Amsterdam, a DAAD composer in residence in Berlin, and currently editor-in-chief of the Leonardo Music Journal, and a professor in the Department of Sound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago), after lunch on Saturday April 2nd 2016, at La Generale Nord-Est in Paris, during the set-up for the Sonic Protest Festival.

unPublic #18 - Daebu-do, 14 june 2015, by Ian-John Hutchinson

[June 14, 2016 | #g.002]
This SoundBlog guest contribution by Ian-John Hutchinson is an article written not long after the 18th unPublic, which - one year ago, on June 14th 2015 - had him perform on the beach of the South-Korean island of Daebu, together with Taewon Lee, Samir Abdelhamid and Emmanuel Rebus. Afterwards Ian-John interviewed all of that unPublic's participants, and wrote things down, thus providing some interesting insights into the processes and intentions at play during this episode, and the unPublic series in general.
