Vincent Duseigne  Bruyères school / Avenue des Arts 49, 1348 Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium   Options radio aporee    2017  On june 24, my wife decided to leave me, after 17 years of common life, traveling, exploring, recording everywhere. It arrived during a long evening spent in a school ( sound https://aporee.org/maps/?loc=36999 ). We are exactly three month after. I still understood nothing, but henceforth no matter. In my new home, this is the common sound I can hear near everyday, also a school with young children. The name is heather school, in fact its the name of the district of the Louvain-La-Neuve city. It was a symbolic act to record the first day in it, new home, new life, new hopes. Regularly, you can hear my great friend the Common Starling. Nothing special about this sound, except it was my first hour in it. A new beginning.

Hi Neighbor! you sure are noisy!

Howdy coelacanthø it can't be helped, it's in my name!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:06pm northguineahills:

I'm going to have to leave work soon, so, I'll only get the beginning of the field recording portion.

hello hello! :) these are some delightfully opinionated birds we're listening to today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:07pm coelacanth∅:

oh i like when my neighbors are noisy, so they can't justify complaining about me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:09pm Jesse Kaminsky:

no complaints here, noise it up!
Hi @northguineahills! I recommend leaving work now but that's just me.
Hi @gloomsday, the birds are actually very accommodating once you get to know them..
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 7:15pm geezerette:

My cat would have loved this. She'd be searching for the birds and circling back to me for an answer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:18pm Jesse Kaminsky:

hey geezerette! There are a wealth of youtube videos for cats, long set shots of birds and fishtanks that I sometimes project for my cats. They are always confused.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:20pm northguineahills:

Ok, 10+ hours is long enough (and I've been the only one at the office all day), I'm off for a drink, since I can afford that again. I'll hit you at the end of your show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:21pm Jesse Kaminsky:

sounds great, well earned. Welcome back to the working world!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:22pm coelacanth∅:

i wish my neighborhood sounded something like this. where i moved from a year ago sort of did. better, in my opinion. a variety of birds, including a variety of owls; insects; very active squirrels; deer (& other, non-noisy animals); an occasionally howling dog not far away and other dogs a little farther; geese, seasonally; and a rail trail at the bottom of the hill that was the house's back/my front yard - so occasional interesting loud walkers, and a daily group of waldorf school children walking once in each direction.
'never heard a neighbor's tv or anyone's rap or other crappy music, except the rare drive by at the student housing nearby. (which also contributed some interesting noise sometimes, and some partying - but rarely enough that the sound was welcome)
- now it's just the gas station/convenience store next door, and a busy street pretty close by.

...this too shall pass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:23pm coelacanth∅:

jeez, sorry! i didn't realise i went on so long!

hi peeps

Hi melinda!
@coelacanthø, I just played a 20 minute track of birds and kids playing so not really anyone to talk about going on too long...
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 7:30pm geezerette:

Hello Coel, Melinda, NGH !
I'm loitering, back to work now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:31pm coelacanth∅:

heh, thanks Jesse! i think i was lost in reminiscence. makes me sad; i really liked that crappy little attic apartment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:32pm coelacanth∅:

hey g!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 7:33pm melinda:

It's sad when you have to leave a place you like. I once had an old attic apartment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:38pm coelacanth∅:

yeah the landlord thought he could renovate it and get a lot more money for it. i actually would've paid 100 bucks more/month if he really did fix it up; but i know he didn't...and he's probably sorry that he lost me, because now that apartment will join the other 6 in the house that are constantly changing occupants, with long periods of vacancy in-between.

images are of sculptures from the 2000's by El Anatsui: el-anatsui.com
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 7:57pm still b/p:

I'm right about at the 20th anniversary of my arrival in this apartment. Freaky long compared to residency tales and histories of most people I know.

The Wu environment sounds like being aboard ship.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 7:58pm Jesse Kaminsky:

I think it's a wind farm but I've never been up close to one to find out
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:03pm coelacanth∅:

i've driven by vast fields of wind turbines, but silly me didn't own a good recorder at the times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:04pm coelacanth∅:

i'd like to know more about this metal hole in the middle of a muddy road.
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 8:06pm still b/p:

Send a metal rabbit down the hole.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:09pm coelacanth∅:

that's so metal, man!
(and don't do that without your recorder ready)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:09pm Jesse Kaminsky:

Hey still b/p!
@coelacanthø, unfortunately no other info on that metal hole :/
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 8:10pm melinda:

This is nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:15pm coelacanth∅:

so it's bottle caps. i wonder if he drank all those beers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:20pm coelacanth∅:

...and other discarded materials. i like resourcing trash to art; very respectable. and his art is interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:21pm Jesse Kaminsky:

Art 21 did a short video in his studio in Nigeria, worth a watch: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:33pm coelacanth∅:

i'll have to wait until i'm on a different computer that doesn't freeze with youboob.
...his site says he's from ghana, which is where i bought my bougarabou from. that got me wondering what that craftman was up to. i'm not finding him though. it'd be a shame if he's not making drums any more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:35pm Jesse Kaminsky:

He was born in Ghana but spent most of his life in Nigeria as far as I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:39pm Jesse Kaminsky:

do you play the bougarabou coelacanthø?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:42pm coelacanth∅:

right, it says he works and lives "between" ghana and nigeria. 'can't find info on what materials he's using though - besides bottle caps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:43pm Jesse Kaminsky:

got a pic coming up next that might illuminate. It's mostly discarded wine foil caps and other (mostly alcoholic) drink caps and wrappers. Usually held together with copper wire I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:47pm coelacanth∅:

-yeah i play drums. i play anything that i can and have an odd collection of instruments, but can't say i play them well! -certainly not conventionally.
-and i'm pretty sloppy on the drum kit; but not too bad with hand drums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:50pm coelacanth∅:

wow that's awesome! he actually wires each one together!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 8:51pm melinda:

Cool. The close-up photo helps illuminate what's going on there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:52pm Jesse Kaminsky:

well, he and his crew of assistants. I showed this to a class once and they all got so mad that he used assistants, imagining that he must have spent every waking hour on this or it wasn't legit
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:55pm coelacanth∅:

i understand that; but then if he didn't have assistants the world simply would not have much of his art.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:55pm Jesse Kaminsky:

yeah, their argument was also that he should credit them, which I can see as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:56pm coelacanth∅:

i'd have to agree with that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 8:57pm coelacanth∅:

what'd they think of Andy Warhol, and his assembly line art?
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 8:58pm still b/p:

Make students do research on assistants in the studio through the ages. MAKE 'EM. Though I've seen phenomenally intricate and elaborate work apparently done by solo artists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 9:01pm melinda:

It is weird that assistants don't receive credit. I remember being disillusioned when I learned that a lot of art pieces aren't solo creations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:03pm Jesse Kaminsky:

I always thought a lecture series by the people that run the shop for successful artists would be super informative
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:03pm Jesse Kaminsky:

It is weird, just industry standard. Like what if movies just listed the director in the credits and that's it..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:04pm coelacanth∅:

me too melinda. especially Warhol's multiple images of Marilyn or whatever - which are just mechanically duplicated images with a different color applied to each one. it wouldn't even take that long to do it himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:06pm coelacanth∅:

right, Jesse...but then it's bothered me since i was a wee tyke that the string and horn sections of pop/rock records never listed every musician - just the arranger.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:08pm coelacanth∅:

(we do see it sometimes now, though)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:11pm Jesse Kaminsky:

Here's a secret: during the second set I ordered Pho. It just arrived.
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 9:13pm still b/p:

Art from centuries past is sometimes credited to "Studio of (famous name)," and attributions can get changed or blurred -- thought to be the master, then reassessed as created/executed by someone under his wing.

On the music side, I sometimes think about all the anonymous voices who sang in choruses and back-up teams for popular music through the decades of the 20th century. Beyond immediate credit question, strange that there must be so damn many of them, but I never heard someone show up elsewhere saying, 'Yes, I did a bunch of Percy Faith recordings," or Nat Cole or Andy Williams back-ups or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:18pm Jesse Kaminsky:

@coelacanthø, I suppose if you open a Deutche Grammophon record it probably doesn't list all the personnel, right? It's been a while since I cracked one
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:19pm Jesse Kaminsky:

I don't think we (as humans) were always so caught up in the idea of the solo genius
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 9:22pm melinda:

Jesse exactly. A director gets more recognition than other people working on a film, but everyone has a title and gets credit. I've often thought that artists who work on a scale that requires multiple helpers as directors, of a sort.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:25pm northguineahills:

'Ardcore!

ok, more glitchery in the comments board...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:28pm Jesse Kaminsky:

@melinda, totally but I can't imagine the art culture changing that much to give production credits.
welcome back northguineahills, how was your drink?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:29pm northguineahills:

refreshing! (got a lot of reading done)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:29pm coelacanth∅:

what's "pho" - an asian dish, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:32pm Jesse Kaminsky:

yeah Vietnamese rice noodle soup :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 9:32pm melinda:

I don't see it changing either. But it's interesting also for the reason that doing your own work and having other people execute your vision are different projects requiring different skills (with some overlapping of course), one isn't necessarily superior to the other, yet these roles are both lumped together under the artist label.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:33pm northguineahills:

I really dig the visual artist you chose for this week. As per usual, new to me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:35pm northguineahills:

Heck, when it comes to music, I believe the designers who built the instruments, the machinists who pressed them w/ machines, should alsi be credited as collaborators.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:36pm Jesse Kaminsky:

@northguineahills, his website: el-anatsui.com
and a cool Art 21 video in his studio, lots of process shots and stuff: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 9:36pm still b/p:

Can only imagine the extra effort and relationship zones required for some artists, i.e., for casting sculptures you gotta find foundry individuals who get you and are good 'n reliable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:38pm coelacanth∅:

ngh i like that idea; and i think occasionally, within the incorrectly named genre "experimantal music", that actually happens.
Avatar Tue. 10/3/17 9:38pm still b/p:

Did the zebras get credit for this track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:39pm Jesse Kaminsky:

Besides which, I think it's just much less interesting to think about artists as mythical solitary figures than as real humans who have to talk to and work with other people to execute often fluid processes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:44pm coelacanth∅:

Stravinsky wasn't expected to play every instrument in his compositions, nor was Frank Zappa. i, myself might be creating some good music if i had other people with playing talent at my disposal. i certainly would take advantage of that; but i'd definitely give each and every player credit - including credit for arranging their parts, if they did so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:45pm northguineahills:

@Jesse: I already shared the site.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:46pm coelacanth∅:

as for visual art - it's hard to imagine...but i guess if i made art like this (<) i might.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:46pm northguineahills:

Crap, time to go back to cleaning/unpacking. If I don't get back, thanks Jesse!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:47pm Jesse Kaminsky:

np northguineahills, have a good unpacking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/3/17 9:48pm melinda:

I do little drawings and I'm introverted, so it's hard for me to imagine conceiving only of projects that require others in order to take form.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:50pm coelacanth∅:

tchau ngh

...i wonder if El Anatsui's art would be different if he did it all himself. i think so. i think if it were all him there'd be more deliberate patterns within the bigger swatches of specific materials.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:53pm coelacanth∅:

same for myself, melinda. my drawing is my drawing. i'm positive that if i commissioned someone else - no matter who, and no matter how detailed the instructions, that it would not end up exactly as if i had done it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:54pm Jesse Kaminsky:

Hard to know, his website has lot of earlier work that looks smaller in scale and could have bene solo, very different than the tapestries that he became famous for. There could be ways to take into account the uncertainty of other people building things and allow that to be the process.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:55pm Jesse Kaminsky:

but I suspect you're right, totally different process
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/3/17 9:55pm Jesse Kaminsky:

maybe
