A great part of the promising month I will spend in France. On 6, 7 and 8 March I will be found in the bar of Le Lieu Unique during the Sonor Festival.
That’s how it sounds in French:
Rinus propose au moyen de sessions de mix courts, à base de bandes magnétiques, d’atmosphériser les moments de transition entre les différentes performances de la soirée.
In real time it sounds like a lot of people talking and some sounds that move in between their conversations. Now in Nantes writing this, I had the luck to arrive on a bright sunny day, so that I could marvel at the beautiful sharp light in this part of the world. Unfortunately the day ended with ‘drewling’ wheather, as John Morin, my host put it. Also this evening I will mix sounds from my box of cassettes. On Sunday midday I will do a live interview for the local radio JetFm that organized this, somehow, unique festival of radiophonic productions.
7 – 8 March, Le Lieu Unique, Foyer Haut, Quai Ferdinand-Favre, Nantes
On the 8th of March I will return to Paris, where I will live a week in a small appartment in Quartier Latin. I hope I can finish a piece I am writing, called ‘predicting the past,’ and maybe do some recordings to add to my parisian collection. Paris is also hometown to Diktat. This means that no visit to the French capital will be without a performance. The first one will be at the studio of radio aligre and will be transmitted live on the songs of praise.
9 March, AligreFM 93.1 , Paris and RP
I will use Harold Schellinx as an unmasked ghostwriter for the following two announcements.
