Urban Songlines: Reterritorializing Public Space by Translating Buildings into Music

Allard van Hoorn

The tradition of Songlines, a system for navigating and connecting to their land among Australian Aborigines, can be translated to mapping urban space by creating music from its topography, initiating a discussion on how we use and experience the public domain and to what degree we can claim ownership over it. In this project I translate buildings, sites, and objects in public space into music, wo...

Guattari’s Ecosophy and Nature as Machinic Assemblages: In Reading Literatures and Films by Kobo Abe

Toshiya Ueno

In this paper I will explore Guattari’s tactical idea of ecosophy (or virtual ecology) as the integrative moment of his itinerary in both theory and practice.

Alone/Together: Simulacral “A-Presentation” in/into Practice-As-Research in Jazz

Steve Tromans, Mike Fletcher

No series enjoys a privilege over others, none posses the identity of a model, none the resemblance of a copy . . . Each is constituted by differences, and communicates with the others through differences of differences.
—Gilles Deleuze (2004: 348) This lecture-recital, interposing live music making and spoken word is concerned with our understandings of the creative processes by which...
