Gal's Newsletter III/2006
-
July 7th, 2006


Dear friends and colleagues,

welcome to the third installment of this year's newsletter!

After a very productive first half of 2006 - a.o. 4 new
installations, 2 new collaborations (with K. Fagaschinski
and J. Walshe), the instrumental composition 'behape',
some lecturing at the University of the Arts in Berlin
(http://www.udk-berlin.de/studio-klangkunst), the
inauguration of the Austrian art organization "sp ce",
and the first edition of the Viennese festival
"Shut up and Listen!" (http://www.sp-ce.net/sual),
it is time to shift gears.

...well, not exactly slowing down, but rather evaluating
what's been done, i.e. creating some distance by
travelling, taking in new experiences, cooking up new
ideas, and presenting already existing work
under new circumstances, and for new audiences.

In short, there's a lot of touring ahead:

Concerts, installations, lectures, and radio shows
in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Germany,
Switzerland, Turkey, UK and the USA.

In addition, three installations are still being
exhibited in Austria and Germany, respectively.
- so if you happen to be around, take a look (and a listen)!

Please skip through the schedule below
- I hope that our paths will cross again, here or there!

...and, of course, enjoy summer time!


Bernhard Gal
