Wednesday 13   Giles Thomas and Patries Wichers

Respectively the guitarist and vocalist from Bateau Lavoir, Antwerp, have been working on a side project together; the approach remains - no-repertoire, improvised music; both musicians started working with delays but recent development has seen a shift from delays to fixed instruments; listen at http://www.bateaulavoir.org/tw.html

Friday 15   Andreas Weixler & Se-Lien Chuang

A concert of computer music, video and interactive audiovisual improvisation; the 25th anniversary of Atelier Avant Austria/ the 10th anniversary of artistic cooperation between Weixler-Chuang; http://avant.mur.at/concerts/ei06/index.html - in collaboration with the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York, support by the province government of Styria and province government of Upper Austria, comission of SKE Fonds

Sunday 17   Andrea Parkins

Electro multi-instrumentalist Andrea Parkins is a sound artist, composer and improvising musician who also makes and/or arranges objects, images and (sometimes) words; she will perform solo pieces for electronically processed accordion and MAX processed sampling (merging analog electronics with treatments by "Rube Goldberg," a live generative processing instrument), writing a fractured yet fluid sonic language as she releases awkward electronic disruptions, dislocation-inspired samples and noisy feedback into a rising flow of accordion sonority

Monday 18   Yasunao Tone

Zeena Parkins joins the concert cum launch party in celebration of the release of "Yasunao Tone - Noise Media Language" (Errant Bodies Press) - given the release of the book will not be ready for the concert date a mock-up version of the book will be shown at the concert, and introduced through a video work by the editor Brandon LaBelle; the concert will consist of Tone's new piece for Parkins, Origin of Geometry: An Introduction, based on the text of Husserl/Derrida, and a duo performance by Tone and Parkins; the book - with contributions by Robert Ashley, Dasha Dekleva, William Marotti, Federico Marulanda Rey, and Achim Wollscheid, and an interview with the artist by Hans Ulrich Obrist; "Yasunao Tone - Noise Media Language" is an indispensable monograph on this enigmatic artist

Tuesday 19   Maria Blondeel

48 minutes; a steady sound accompanying an almost empty, steady image on the screen; sonic video made in a driving car - the recordings where shot during the Argos Festival 2004 that took place in Brussels on the R20; a track has Dreaming / Rethinking and Transfiguring the Sites and Sounds of Brussels'.

-------------------- Activities of Experimental Intermedia v.z.w. Gent, Belgium
In 1993, the American artist Phill Niblock opened a house with window gallery at Sassekaai 45, in Gent, Belgium.

Quickly the EI Huis became a meeting place for many local and international artists and art lovers. In 1997, the co-ordinating committee - Phill Niblock, Maria Blondeel, Zjuul Devens, Lieve D'hondt and Ludo Engels - founded a Belgium organization, the Experimental Intermedia v.z.w. Gent. EI presents 4 or more installations a year in the windows. The installations can be seen from the street through two large windows: pedestrians, car drivers, bikers and people on the tram cannot help but give attention to the curved front with its two windows, bringing the art (often literally) onto the street. By exploring the space and the environment, the artist can surprise passers-by .EI has produced several projects in collaboration with other international artists' organizations like Kunstcentrum Sittard, Sittard (NL), MeX, Dortmund (D), ICAEE, Tokyo (JP), Voorkamer, Lier (B) and Logos Foundation, Gent (B).
