Baudrillard Sound Art In Mainz

This Saturday at 5:30pm, if you happen to be in Mainz Germany, drop by the Antiquariat am Ballplatz to hear me debut a new sound art piece. I have the honour of kick-starting Die Gegenwart Von Jean Baudrillard, a two day conference organised by Caroline Heinrich. Among the six papers is one by Alan Shapiro, friend and author of the fantastic Star Trek book I blogged about back in 2006.

This is a very particular conference, a personal approach to this enigmatic thinker. It includes a harpsichord recital, a song or two, and a paper by Marine Dupuis Baudrillard, "Rhapsodie Amoureuse Ou 'Transfert Poétique De Situation'". It's all part of a festival of French culture in Mainz, organised by the Instituts Français.

My problem going into this project was significant. How can I address The Presence Of Baudrillard through sound? I'll consider that in my next post.
