Next report of January 2007

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.

Hi all

Hope you have had a nice Christmas day and feast.

A number of interesting news this month.

Optical Sound at France Culture

On December 3rd, the French radio France Culture dedicated the second part of the program "L'atelier de création radiophonique" to Pierre Belouin ( Optical Sound ) : AWAN ~ SIGUAWINI ~~ SPEMKI ~~~PHOTOGRAPHIES SONORES  In the frame ofthe program " Résidences croisées Alsace, France / Lac Saint-Jean, Québec", Pierre Belouin presented to Langage Plus the expo " awan ~ siguawini ~~ spemki ~~~ ", which means in Abénaki " air/in spring/paradise ". House, Forest, Lake, Factory are the common denominators of the recordings and photos, realized since the first week of his arrival, to keep the first impression of his discovery of Alma and surroundings. Eight photographs of landscape are mixed with a sound landscape which the artist recorded on the places he photographed. The recordings have been transmitted with the fitting image through internet to French sound plasticians. The workshop presents 5 original tapes composed by Rainier Lericolais, Eddie Ladoire, Norscq, Ramuntcho Matta et Wild Shores.
The recording of the program is available in Real Player at

Ecoconstruction and know-how:

Last year Alain Dussort sent me a very interesting CD containing videos about the ecoconstruction work-shops and realizations he and friends make (see the report of August 2005 ). The CD was made by Catharsis Productions - six years of existence. The videos are on line in the site Catharsis Productions, which now is operational Catharsis Prod is an association 1901 which realizes documentaries to socialize know-how. Two directors, Alain Dussort and Patric Trotzier realized films about the ecoconstruction, about India, Morocco, techniques of drive (...)

At the page you can see a video on the house of Ines and Frank, built in straw for less than 7000 euros!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very nice movie.

The whole appears as a precious and useful work on the human level.


In the investigation "Black holes in market economy", Following the previous investigation by Paul O'Donovan " 9. " Infogérance et dérégulation des services publics : Pas vu pas pris, pris pendu ! " (" Facilities management and deregulation of public services : not seen not taken, taken hung ! " ), here are two new articles about methods applied by so-called "facilities" management:

10. Les fiches de poste: des cartes non similaires aux territoires : this one concerns the time-tables for the staff realized by audits, describing every task and the time to accomplish it, in the circumstance the one of a nurse in a home for retreated people: but the map does not fit to the territory, which is much wider. As a result, the time-tables are unrealistic, impossible to respect, so they do not fulfill the functions which justify their existence. At the page one can see the whole time-tables for a week and extra work non included in it. The fees audits require to make such time-tables are rather high, so those audits reveal themselves as swindles.

11. Dénonciations calomnieuses et méthodes mafieuses: quand les entreprises et les services publics deviennent des zones de non-droit : (11. Slanderous denunciations and Mafiosis' methods: when companies and public utilities become zones of non-right) : This articles is about the present methods of staff management which institutionalize slanderous denonciations to fire people who cost money, qualified and experienced staff, to the benefit of non qualified and non experienced staff, which cost the minimum.
