For the new comers: The reports of Interzone contain the monthly activities of the members of the group in different domains. As we are about 400 people in the world, all different, the whole might appear at first sight as an incongruous medley. For more information on the subjects developed here, please refer to the previous reports since 1997 in the page Information on Interzone

Hi all,

This month has been extremely rich on productions on Burroughs and Gysin, as you will see reading this report. From my side, I have been giving seminars on general semantics and one on the dreamachine :-).

Lawrence.com : William Burroughs ten years after:

Following my text in the report of July "Interzone: ten years after", I received this mail from Patricia Elliott:

"Dear Isabelle, Thanks so much for this story. You don't know what it means to me. It helped me remember my feelings that day. I wanted to cut and paste your remarks as a comment, which of course should be up to you. If you would please add your memory of that time to the Lawrence.com edition. http://www.lawrence.com/deadwood/. It is the local special edition remembering Williams time here in Lawrence. Lots of interesting interviews and pictures. I think it would mean something to Lawrence to realize that people felt something when William died. I ask you to post it on the memory site and I encourage anyone to visit and leave messages. One has to register to leave comments, but it is easy. Best regards to Interzone people. Thank you" patricia elliott Lawrence, Kansas.

"William Burroughs" by Théophile Aries:

James' interview has been translated in French by Théophile Aries. It's on line in his site at " Burroughs : 10 ans après sa mort - Interview de James Grauerholz" http://theo.underwires.net/Burroughs-10-ans-apres-sa-mort This site is very well made and contains a lot of documents on Burroughs. Théo is translating "Yage Letters" for a new edition published by Christian Bourgois and working at a group work of anniversary on "Naked Lunch".

 

Mohamed Hamri 7th Anniversary

"Mohamed Hamri the Joujouka man who made his village famous died this day seven years ago. He is remembered fondly by all the musicians of Joujouka on this day. Hamri the painter brought the musicians to world attention bringing Brion Gysin , William Burroughs , Brian Jones from Rolling Stones, Ornette Coleman and many more people who have helped and worked with the Masters to his home village. The Master Musicians of Joujouka would like to acknowledge the former president of their association on this day.

You can read an obituary of Hamri on our website at http://joujouka.net/2Legacy/41/mohamed-hamri-obituary-in-the-independent-london by Frank Rynne

He lived the blessings of Sidi Ahmed Schiech Mohamed Hamri 1932 -28 August 2000 May he rest in peace"
Master Musicians of Joujouka http://www.myspace.com/mastermusiciansofjoujouka

 

live in London 1982: BRION GYSIN with Ramuntcho Matta:

Autumn 1982, Brixton, London,
Brion Gysin, the eternal accomplice of William Burroughs, renews the methods of performance by reciting texts, hastily brought together:
Tessa, a member of Slits,
Steve, of Rip, Rig and Panic,
Gile, of Penguin Café Orchestra,
and Ramuntcho Matta on guitar.
Ramuntcho, in the style of Brion, called this session 'WHITE FUNK'.

"Most of the texts were written upon meeting Burroughs, at the time of the invention of the cut-up. The influence that Brion Gysin has had on contemporary music may never be taken fully into account, particularly when he introduced Brian Jones, of the Rolling Stones, to the shepard's music of Joujouka. Those times were still audacious: the music was created during the sound-checks ! Musically, the choice of traditional instruments expresses the desire to be free of machines (because, as Burroughs says, 'We ourselves are machines.').

This recording is evidence of the extraordinary creativity and spontaneity of the musical and artistic scene at that time. It hasn't aged a bit. Beyond the nostalgia inspired by the invocation of that bygone cultural scene, there is a call for a creativity of which it is difficult to find examples today." Sub Rosa

Brion Gysin's voice spreads an extraordinary energy, his off-hand speech is an oxygen puff. A big thanks to Ramuntcho Matta and Sub Rosa for this CD !

You can buy it from Sub Rosa at http://www.subrosa.net/online/main_dr_catalogue_aural_detail.php?AlbumID=35

 

Brion Gysin: Tuning in to the Multimedia Age:

Jean Marc VINCENT brought me this very beautiful book published by Thames and Hudson, which contains an impressive number of Brion's paintings which I had never seen before. It's a pity that his work as a painter is not more known or has not been published before, as this book is a proof of the quality of his paintings.

Jean-Marc is a French photographer who collaborated to the poetry of Brion Gysin through his review "Ecritures", he made portraits of William Burroughs who were used for the covers of his books in France (see at the top of this page, the books published by Christian Bourgois). He photographed Ginsberg, Giorno, Orlowski, Burroughs, Patti Smith, Gainsbourg, ... jazzmen, writers and is a specialist in the photographs of cows. He now has a page in My Space at http://www.myspace.com/ecritures

He published in Ecriture n 16 in 1987 the first version of the article "The Time fo the Naguals", on line at http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/time-of-Naguals.html in French and English, and organized in Montluçon a concert of Steve Lacy.

If you want to buy from him unpublished pictures of William Burroughs or Brion Gysin, (he has great ones !), you can join him through his site at http://www.myspace.com/ecritures

Literature:

General semantics :

* A French translation by your reporter of a chapter of "Science and Sanity" by Alfred Korzybski: "Du symbolisme" , on line at http://semantiquegenerale.free.fr/Articles/onsymbolism.pdf . The original text ,"On symbolism" is at http://web.archive.org/web/20040315232934/http://esgs.free.fr/uk/art/sands-ch07.pdf ) More doc on general semantics at http://semantiquegenerale.free.fr/doc.htm

This chapter is particularly interesting and rather funny. It is very useful for people involved in research on use of symbols, and specially economy . English speaking readers can read the whole book, on line at : http://web.archive.org/web/20040205124242/http://www.esgs.org/uk/art/sands.htm

Virus and spams senders:

This month has also been very busy from spammers' side: I have received a number of spams using my emails, name , some usurpating other Zoners's identity, or refering to Interzone, as well as a whole bunch of virus, which have been immediately deleted by Bit Defender and did not reach my computer. The problem with usurpating identities and sending spams is that then the emails usurpated are considered as spams even when their legal owners use them, and they do not arrive into the reception boxes, but are deleted or sent to "spam boxes".

So I have kept on putting on line the details and source on the spams, as well as a link on their IP address allowing to identify their computer through the site Ripe http://www.ripe.net/whois : see http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders34.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders35.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders36.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders37.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders38.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders39.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders40.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders41.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders42.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders43.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders44.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders45.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders46.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders47.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders48.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders49.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders50.html http://www.interpc.fr/mapage/westernlands/virussenders51.html

To find the origin of the spam, introduce the IP address in the Ripe search engine, and you get a list of info on the sender. Then if you click on the links "admin-c" and "tech-c", then you get the name and address of the sender and can complain to the email of the abuse mailbox. :-)))

Ripe is the "whois "site for Europe. For the other continents, see APNIC (Asia Pacific Network Information Center) http://www.apnic.net/search/index.html, ARIN (American Registry for Internet Numbers) http://www.arin.net/index.shtml, and AfriNIC (African Region Internet Registry) http://www.afrinic.net/cgi-bin/whois
