Curiosities on film

My good friend Toog, aka Gilles Weinzaepflen, has assembled a short video of my reading at La Société de Curiosités in Paris last Wednesday:



You can hear me (or rather my computer) reading the same chapter in English here. The chapter is based on this song, sung here in 1978 by Angelo Branduardi, but with Jewish or German origins and symbolism lost in the mists of time:



In rather the same way that I've drifted from making electronic songs to making books, Toog has drifted from making electronic songs to making films. Here's a trailer for Prélude au Sommeil, Toog's documentary about electronic music composer Jean-Jacques Perrey, who's now 80 years old:



You can download the entire Perrey documentary (for €5) here.

Hello wise man!!!

I was searching some info about bishonen and Bjorn so I came here!!! Your investigation was like the sunlight after a damn horrible storm.

I added you as a friend, I hope we can be in touch.

Thank you again (I made a link here from my journal).

Have an awesome weekend and again thank you very much!

Sketches

I have a friend who did a couple of sketches of you during this reading - if you'd like to see them, let me know where I can send you a scan.
