VIENNA

The boat just arrived in Vienna. Jodi Rose joined us in Bratislava juste before the departure. She’s recording the internal voices of the bridges she encounters on her road, and already started to tease Vienna’s ones. Our invited guests from the electromagnetic fields diggers S.I.C. (Spectral Investigations Collective : Horia Cosmin Samoïla, Aljosa Abrahamsberg, Ewen Chardronnet) are joining us here also, and will stay until the departure from LINZ where we will perform an OFF Ars Electronica event. Check the site for the news ;) And the swans around the boat that are trying to seduce us looks like a post Fennesz Touch label cover... Vienna style.

AFTER-BUDAPEST...

The Danube boat just arrived BRATISLAVA after passing a huge lock (third that we met after those 2 famous locks from Iron Gates corridor between serbia and romania). Vincent Voillat back to the boat filmed it as a plan-sequence. The other new residents are Joachim Montessuis (who was previsously on the Rhine boat), Piotr Talmachou (since Vukovar) that never stoped recording the life on the Boat, Frederik de Wilde (arrived in Budapest). A new assistant is also on-board, Sabrina, she helped a journalist from TELERAMA (french cultural magazine) to interview all the artist on-board.

The 6 days spent in BUDAPEST lead us to discover and record on of the major city of our Danube trip with its covered market and multiple bathes (brought by turkish that were not so bad invider in a way - cf previous post).

For some of us, this was also 1 or 2 days spent inside another bath : Sziget crowd. Sziget festival takes place on 6 days an island in the north of the city. An happy village that gathered teenagers (and their big-brothers and sisters...) from all over Europe. Many french were there and we met by chance some friends there (Romain and Moreau - hug).

The stay ended Tuesday August 19 by a performance for an exhibition opening in the frame of Szentendre Performance festival. Szentendre is a little town nearby Budapest situated alongside the Danube where there are a strong tradition of welcoming artists. It was also a place of freedom even during the communist period.

BACK IN THE EUSSR

ESD danube boat is now travelling towards Budapest after a 2 days stop in Mohacs on the hungarian-croatian border. Mohacs battle took place in the 16th century. Soliman defeated the hungarian king Louis the 2nd and the event is still kept somewhere in national collective consciousness as a donward turning point [see : BATTLE OF MOHACS]. Now Mohacs is a quiet city of 20000 inhabitants with a new model army : customs & EU border police... still waiting for some turkish-style invasion (unless croatia & serbia enter the EU, sure it will happen)...

Next event SZENTENDRE (live with AMSTERDAM) tuesday August 19 (arround 9pm) with WPMG (BRA-FR) / PIOTR TALMACHOU (BIELORUSSIA) / FRED DE WILDE (BELGIUM) / JOACHIM MONTESSUIS (FR) and participation JOHN SINCLAIR (MC5-to be confirmed) live from AMSTERDAM + guests artists from BUDAPEST

V2 Events - Rotterdam

Some pictures of the events @ V2. Rotterdam is calm and quiet in August. Tamara Albaitis just arrived from San Francisco join us there. First night : 6 local live acts + 2 live streams from Vukovar (Tanakan and Gaël Segalen) - on V2’s sound system : 3000 watts in 4 corners. Nice powerful sound (thx richard !). Second night : Placard event, headphones for everybody. The weird thing is that the Placard happened during the annual Rotterdam Dance Parade, which was quite the absolute reverse of what we tried to do @ V2. Huge sound systems were close to V2, and we had the visit of some kind of badly drugged and drunk people. Fight club & clash of cultures stuff. They kind of tried to kill and eat us but they got bored by our noisy bones.. Next stop : Amsterdam !!

Rotterdam & work at V2

The boat left Antwerp tuesday 5th of August. It took 1 day and a half of navigation through Zélande to arrive in Rotterdam. On board, the artists appreciated the very impressive industrial landscape, full of beauty (you’ll soon be able to see a video of Vincent Voillat on his blog).

VUKOVAR vs ROTTERDAM pace & peace

After leaving the so lively city of Belgrad, 2 days of navigation and a short night stop in NoviSad we arrived tuesday evening in Vukovar-CROATIA. For both of us this is very impressive : the city has been nearly entirely destroyed during the very begining of the yougoslave conflict and even main there are a lot of new buildings lot of ruins can still be seen when you walk through the city. Unfortunately, Rosa Maric Vukovar City Museum’s director and our precious guide when we first visited the city is not in town but Mirela her assistant is helping us a lot (for example we are now working in their offices as our embedded web system cannot working : our boat perfectly docked is however too far from the shore for installing our satellite antenna).

In rosa’s offices, Resident artists are all preparing their performances that will take place tomorrow and saturday nearby the boat and in the museum Park.

Philip Griffiths (aka WPMG) is in town for location spotting as he prepared a new audiowalk with the same sound he used last week end in Belgrad.

Claudia Wegener, Gael Ségalen and Ludger Hennig had several appointments for interviews with inhabittants (Ludger today visited a profaned crypt (dried bodies and bones still lying out of the grave...) and the blockhaus where more 300 croatian inhabitants were standing nearly without food and water during the intense bombings before city surrendered in late 1991). Tô, also very impressed by the visit of the city, has made some underwater recordings of amazing aquatic insects that leave in the area...

ah... good news Andréa the serbian visual art student that helped us to set up the audiowalk in Belgrad had decided to join us by truck. She has arrived yesterday.
