sample world

Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta (Lisbon)                                               Sunday 14
Voyager 66 = a trip - Route 66 = romantic reference - 66 streets, New York City - Voyager's
trip - space probe - Sounds out from the Solar system - Sounds of a 1977's planet Earth, inside the probe, now about 20 billion km from Earth - 37 years ago - a cabalistic number!
Also a trip inside each one of us - The concert includes the sounds of the audience - It is a party! It is a celebration! Like life.  - Your sound - voice, movements, words, silence,
glasses... everything - Inside outside - Starting when you arrive, ending when you go to
sleep - in another dimension - What reminds me Suzuki when he said: "The right art is purposeless, aimless!".  - In this way, Voyager 66 has no explanation -  It simply is

Carver Audain (New York)                                                                              Monday 15
My current work is an ongoing articulation of my interest in temporality and transition - aural intersections and physicality; a new piece comprised of prepared audio and radio will be presented along with recent work intended for a unique listening environment, such as the
one provided at EI

Jacques Diennet  (Marseille)                                                                 Wednesday 17
Le Pic Saint Loup - Jacques Diennet: composition, MIDI keyboard; Joe McPhee:
saxophone, pocket trumpet; Richard Dubelski: percussion & voice; René Bottlang: piano; Suzanne Joubert: text; Julie Demaison: production / distribution; it does not apply here a descriptive music, but the re-drawing of the image and imagination of the first emotional charge, catalyzing a place, harmonies and melodic undulations that load causes, its faults
and escarpments - as a relief of mind; playing stretching, long sequences, also built on an adversarial principle  (a dialogue ) between the abrupt tone, almost harsh percussive instruments (piano, percussion), their connotation "primitive", the saxophone and the most sophisticated digital technology instruments - Pic Saint Loup tries slipping spatio -temporal
and thus blurs confused elements of the universe, water, earth, and bring the viewer to live
a contemplative experience
Production - Ubris Studio, with the support of Marseille City; Region PACA; General Council of Bouches-du-Rhône

Seth Cluett  (US)                                                                                          Thursday 18
