Marco Fusinato MASS BLACK IMPLOSION (TREATISE, CORNELIUS CARDEW)

MASS BLACK IMPLOSION (TREATISE, CORNELIUS CARDEW) 

Marco Fusinato’s works are almost always serial, as if demonstrating a thesis, using a set of rules as ‘controls’ for experimentation. Certain parameters are applied to the given source material, and the results displayed non- hierarchically as objective data. While Fusinato withholds his own interpretation of these images and objects, the material itself plainly indicates the artist’s interests in the potential overlap of cultural production ...

Life is great.

Learning that a Hiwatt Custom 100 with all settings on 1 or 2 facing a wall can create a profound sense of delicacy and wave movement/transference. This is what rehearsing/learning with Mr. Lucier is like.

Thanks to Oren, Mr. Lucier, Mr. Volkov, Charles Curtis, Nanxi and her team at Louvre for making this great night happen.

This afternoon, recording of said piece at the GRM, together with Mr. Lucier and Oren.

I am pleased to present the third cassette on Editions Mego in my structural drone guitar triology.

We were invited to create this long suite of music for the film "Tempestarii" by Gast Bouschet & Nadine Hilbert. The music runs around 90 minutes, and will be used in it's entirety for the exhibition of the "Tempestarii DISintegration" at CCRD opderschmelz Dudelange, Luxembourg. I will perform live at the premier screening of "Tempestarii" on 25 October.

Was fortunate to have a very friendly private guided tour of the site of this new Frank Gehry creation in Paris last week. Have never been able to see the scale of his structures interior in progress before. It's something between dream of Fitzcarraldo (1982), a collapsed Grand Palais, emerging blue whale and abstract Viking burial object. I find it striking.
