From: Cary Peppermint <mint77 {AT} restlessculture.net>
Subject: A Sincerity Lecture

This is a newly completed .mp3 version of one the Technolectures from
"Conductor Number Seventeen V4.0."  This particular Technolecture along with
6 other Technolectures will be given this Saturday, May 24th, starting
promptly at 3pm at Bronx River Arts at 1087 East Tremont Ave, The Bronx,
NYC.

http://www.restlessculture.net/downloads/sincerity_lecture.mp3

The title of this Technolecture is "A Sincerity Lecture."  This
Technolecture is concerned only with THE FACTS.  This Technolecture is a
concentrated effort on my behalf to translate to you through this particular
mp3 file THAT WHICH ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

For 6 months the "techno-bass-pulse" that is the backbone for
"A Sincerity Lecture" has inhabited my headspace.  I oftentimes vocally
mimic it when alone and walking around the city: "BRLOCK-BROK-BLOK-BUUP-BOP
BROK-A-BRA-BOC-BRLOCK-BRLOCK."  It reminds me of the tonality of bullfrogs
but processed within this Technolecture as a recognizable rhythm and thus a
much more pleasurable audio experience for the listener who requires a
"strange comfort" or an odd familiarity or rather an indulgence in the
uncanny.

I have been recording and re-recording the primary vocal component to "A
Sincerity Lecture" for the last 4 days.  Since 11:20am, Thursday May 15th,
2003, I have accumulated 28 different vocal tracks all stored efficiently on
a 120gigabyte LaCie firewire drive purchased online through J&R World and
delivered to my apartment exactly one week ago tomorrow via Federal Express.

Today at 5:50pm, Sunday May 18th, 2003 I decided that I had to stop
recording these different versions of primary vocal tracks and accept THE
FACT that I may never be able to "sound" exactly the way I would like to
"sound" for you with regards to this particular Technolecture.  However
please note this is only release version 1.0 of "A Sincerity Lecture."

Much to my surprise the vocal-preamble for the work was recorded in one
quick and direct take starting at 6:20pm and ending shortly thereafter at
6:25pm.  I engaged in a mix-down process via Cubase that lasted until
9:15pm.  The mixdown resulted in an .aiff file which was converted to an
.mp3 file and then promptly uploaded at 9:35pm for public reception at

http://www.restlessculture.net/downloads/sincerity_lecture.mp3

The piece runs at 6 minutes, 55 seconds.  It is an 8.2 MB download.  I have
a 56k dial-up connection and the piece took exactly 12 minutes to upload so
56k users could expect roughly the same amount of time for the download.  I
imagine if you have a DSL/cable connection or better this will be no
problem.  

Sincerely,
Cary Peppermint

Subject: Open Source Software, Development & Intellectual Property Rights

INVITATION  3 June 2003 Killer (Application is People )Club
(sorry for cross-posting)
Open Source Software, Development Co-operation and Intellectual 
Property Rights

Together with the HIVOS foundation, Waag Society organises a Killer 
Club on open source and development co-operation.

In the South (formerly called: the Third World), the use of Open Source 
Software (OSS) spreads rapidly. The advantages of OSS over commercial 
software are in the field of user freedom and often cost savings. The 
use of OSS however asks for a greater learning effort of the users. 
Often this is seen as an advantage.

Big software producers who's business model is based on the exclusive 
rights on the 'soul' of the software, the code, are not happy with 
these worldwide developments. They consider it a threat or even a 
breach of their intellectual property rights. Consequently, they try to 
stop the spread of OSS or at least control it.

OSS clashes with the 'commercial model' of software on the issue of 
Intellectual Property Rights. Can knowledge, which plays such a major 
role in our economy, be restricted to private ownership? Does knowledge 
necessarily need to be 'locked' in order to become a commodity? What 
about the public domain and public ownership of knowledge?

OSS is a direct attack on the market position as well as the 
ideological naturalness of the proprietary model.

This Killer Club is part of the Sarai-Waag Exchange Program. A panel of 
experts, chaired by Patrice Riemens and Lawrence Liang, lawyer in 
Bangalore (India) and founder of a think-tank in this field will 
discuss the subject with invited specialists and policy makers.

The Killer Club will be streamed via the waag-website.

Date: 3 June 2003
Location: De Waag/ Theatrum Anatomicum- Amsterdam
Time: 8 p.m.
Admission: Free

Subject: V2_: Seminar Micro Gravity

Call for participation

MIR - Micro Gravity Interdisciplinary Research
Seminar Micro Gravity
Date: Sunday 22 and Monday 23 June 2003
Time: 10:00 - 18:00 hours
Admission: € 50, students € 40 (lunch included)
Location: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Registration: please mail to workshop {AT} v2.nl

Introduction
Recently V2_ co-organized a series of parabolic flights and activities at 
the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre in Star City (RUS). The first 
outcomes, research and projects of the participating artists and scientists 
of these flights will be unveiled at a presentation and a seminar during 
the Architecture Biennial 2003. The ideas and experiences among experts 
from various disciplines will be exchanged and the relevance of these 
experiences will be discussed in the realm of ‘disembodiment versus 
physicality in virtual reality’. V2_ approaches outer space with its unique 
conditions such as the variations in the force of gravity now for the first 
time from an artistic and cultural point of view.

Seminar
The experience of altered gravity puts a new emphasis on the position of 
the human body with relation to technology. The seminar will focus on 
parallels and scenarios for such new physical experiences by examining the 
variable conditions of micro gravity and virtual reality and their effect 
upon our perception and body language. The participants are thus encouraged 
to rethink their own sense of embodiment within mediated spaces and mixed 
realities. The seminar aims to generate new insights for the next 
generation of virtual reality based upon tactile experience and aesthetic 
perception rather than that of simulation and the representation of our 
daily physical environment.

Speakers are:

MUSEUM IN MOTION
27 may, de Balie Amsterdam

A conference on the future of the museum

With Scott Lash, Thierry de Duve, Boris Groys, Charles Esche, Kathy
Halbreich, Sune Nordgren, Hans Ulrich Obrist , Nikolaus Schafhausen, Bart De
Baere, Sjarel Ex (amongst others) .

Organized by Mondriaan Foundation, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Metropolis
M, Bimonthly Magazine on Contemporary Art

What is the position of a Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in today's
changing society? What are the demands it sees itself confronted with? How
should it respond to the changing circumstances in art and society? One
thing is clear: the typical modernistic l'art pour l'art practice of the
20th century museum no longer seems to apply. The need is for a new, open
and flexible museum practice, focusing on new art, new audiences, new
technologies and new functions.

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Mondriaan Foundation and Metropolis M
present a day of lectures, conversations and debates on the museum of the
future. International curators, museum directors en theorists give their
view on the choices the museum of the 21st century has to make.

English spoken day program (40 euro): Scott Lash, Thierry de Duve, Boris
Groys, Charles Esche, Kathy Halbreich, Sune Nordgren, Hans Ulrich Obrist,
Nikolaus Schafhausen

Nederlandstalig avondprogramma (10 euro) (uitverkocht): Rutger Wolfson, Koen

between 
live performance and media. Directed by Marianne Weems, its OBIE Award-winning 
work re-animates theater for a contemporary audience, using current tools to 
interpret old

architectural 
sets to create a world onstage
that reflects contemporary culture.

Since 1994, with a growing circle of artists, it has collaborated on seven 
large-scale 
theater projects, including Master Builder (1994), The White Album (1995), 
Imperial 
Motel  (Faust) (1996), Jump Cut (Faust) (1997), Jet Lag (1998-2000) with Diller 
+ 
Scofidio, Xtravaganza (2000-01) and Alladeen (2002) with motiroti. Alladeen is 
currently 
touring worldwide in venues including the Barbican Centre, London, Singapore 
International Theater Festival, RomaEuropa, and will appear at BAM's Next Wave 
Festival in December 2003. The company’s work has also been presented at Trafo 
Theater, Budapest, Kaaitheater, Brussels, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, and 
The 
Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Bonnie Marranca is co-founder and editor of PAJ: A Journal of Performance and
