Jean Dupuy dinner in Nice


I visit Jean Dupuy and Olga Adorno. One of the students in the podcast workshop in Nice is dating the son Sebastien Dupuy. The young lady Katherine was one if the better students in the workshop. She along with her friend and classmate Camellia got us all together for a family dinner. Jean and Olga were both integral parts of the 1970's downtown art scene. They are sort of FLuxus sort of alternative space types.

Circular Time

The philosopher Bastien Gallet asks me to talk about time and memory while walking around a circular hedge. Peter Sinclair did the sound recording and remix presented here. Cyrille C. de Lalleu is editing the video. OK maybe I got a bit carried away with the sound of my own voice but it's all true!!!

Locus Sonus Workshop

I'm at the Villa Arson in Nice, France doing a podcasting workshop. In case you are wondering, what I am doing in the south of France, It seems that sound art is quite lively here. Perhaps that's because of Jerome Joy and Peter Sinclair who have put together an experimental 4th & 5th year sound art degree program for Aix-En-Provence and Nice. Here's some sounds but also check out what the students did on their own rss feed. PodArson site and xml subscribe. Interestingly enough, two old Fluxus/Lettriste artists who are friends of mine Jean Dupuy and Olga Adorno live here in Nice. Seems like they are also having a bit of a resurgence here in France. There is some renewed interest in Robert Filliou that is sparking the debate and interest here.
