Ubu Raw

I’m working on a few longer posts right now and should have a podcast or two out next week. Until then, I want to highly recommend a website to those who are unfamiliar. Ubuweb is an avant-garde media archive. Skip their pretentious manifesto and reward your inner art-fag by spending a couple hours getting lost here. Some highlights:

– Billy Whitelaw (Samuel Beckett’s theatrical muse) performing Not I.
– Peter Greenaway’s Four American Composers (Robert Ashley, John Cage, Phillip Glass, Meredith Monk).
– A collection of contemporary Chinese experimental music. (“Pleasure” is disgusting.)
– A film by Anton Corbijn (Control) on Captain Beefheart.
– Selections from a Céline LP (!) featuring excerpts from his novels and a few awesome songs.

Let me know if you find anything of interest.
(Et pour mes lecteurs français: cela n’est pas disponsible sur Ubu, mais on trouve ici plusieurs conferences par Deleuze sur Henri Bergson.)
