Gal's Newsletter II/2006 - March 3rd, 2006

Dear friends and colleagues!

Welcome to the second installment of
this year's newsletter!!
Probably two general mailings will follow
till the end of the year, plus a few more
specific ones, depending on your location.

Like always, this spring promises to become a
quite busy one, with 4 new installations, 2 new
collaborative projects, the premiere of an
instrumental piece, and a few other events coming up.

It will also mark the first edition of the festival
"Shut up and Listen!" in Vienna, curated by
Ernst Reitermaier and myself. Furthermore, I will do
some lecturing on the subject of sound installation art
at the Studio for Sound Art of the University of Arts
in Berlin, which I am very much looking forward to.

all the best from springish Berlin!

hope to see you here or there,
