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.

"live in London" 1982 BRION GYSIN with Ramuntcho Matta

Sub Rosa is publishing a new CDR, " live in London 1982" BRION GYSIN with Ramuntcho Matta . Here is below the article Serge Grundberg wrote about it:

"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.
" Serge Grünberg

The Wmmvrrvrrmm Place!

Dominic has put on line in his site a number of poems; paintings, etc.:

"My online sketchbook and two poems "
"here's my online sketchbook, some of the work there is directly inspired by William Burroughs, you might notice pictures of mugwumps based on the descriptions from Burrough's novels popping up from time to time, although a lot of my work is brought about my pursuit of the surrealist tradition and acknowledgment of some sort of spirit world, otherdimensional phenomena and shamanistic ideas and these days my interest is going into cinematic storyboarding. I haven't updated my drawings in a few months but I'm still gathering my most recent work into something vageul coherent and here are two poems that were directly written using the cut-ups and fold-in technique
I think that the rest of the poems in my collection that I wrote did incorporate some aspects of the technique but I don't recall that much at present. But I hope that they can be appreciated anyway.
Best wishes." Dominic.

Virus and spams senders:

Since recently (May), I have received a number of fake mails, spams, etc. from senders usurpating my identity. I have consulted my server interpc about them and sent them some samples. This had already hapenned last year, and I had put on line the detail and source of the spams. I do not know if there was a relation of cause and effect, but the sending of the spams sent with my emails stopped. As a result, I am starting those pages again: ,,,
