MUDAM, I'm Adam

Second postcard strip from MUDAM, Luxembourg, where tonight I'll play my set of misremembered cover versions.



You can see Lawrence Lessig there delivering his ameliorist lecture on how to save copyright, as well as Cory Arcangel, who played glockenspiel over Bruce Springsteen.

Painter and Bowie impersonator Steve Harvey (pictured somewhere in the middle) will join me on my cover of 'The Candidate'. In the picture next to him you can see James Webb, who gave a great talk describing how he'd invented a Japanese noise artist called Wa and employed a Korean tourist in Cape Town to play her at a festival there. Everyone fell for the ruse, mainly because they wanted to; every city needs one young Japanese noise artist playing sheets of sheer distortion, it seems.
