Artcast - Paul Miller on «Rhythm Science»

Rhythm Science: Book Cover

We're now starting to put online some of the material recorded during ART Basel which ended a week ago. Obviously the publishing process is a little slow and tedious, mostly because Barbara still doesn't have a computer, but well, here's today's ArtCast: basically, it's the lecture Paul miller aka DJ Spooky gave at the ART, speaking about his book «Rhythm Science» (see MIT Press) and the the theory and musical practice of sampling in general. 28:25 minutes, 26MB, includes some pretty cool samples of his musical work.

Listen and enjoy!


Artcast featuring Ilse Ermen

Postcard set by Ilse Ermen

ART is over again, but before we come to all the stuff recorded there, here's yet another pre-ART piece: ArtCast feat. Ilse Ermen. Dr. phil. Ilse Ermen works with language, both in her scientific career in the field of linguistics and as an artist. Barbara Strebel went to see her at her recent exhibition in Basel, if you'd like to know more: please take a look at her website at www.ilse-ermen.com.

Andreas Kopp: Redemption Song

Andreas Kopp is showing "Redemption Song" in Basel from 01. June to 15. July, ArtCast took the occasion to talk to the Dutch artist.

Taking a screwdriver to sheet metal, Andreas breaks new terrain by taking sketching and etching to expand beyond his heritage of the Dutch tradition into new mediums, capturing light, with neon and gold leaf, a traditional Dutch motif.

The installations, between painting and sculpture, allow the viewer space for new interpretations of common objects; the show is very precise in its detailed notes and instinctive gestures, giving new physicality and contemporary meaning to the rusting metal.

Ten years ago he was first spotted in Basel with his «Rembrandt-Lounge», first shown at the Goethe-Institut Rotterdam, which brought him to Kyoto, Osaka, Paris, Rotterdam, Kiew and Milano.
