Uncommon Deities at Punkt

The Punkt Festival kicks off tonight in Norway with the a performance (if that's the correct word) of David Sylvian's "Uncommon Deities" audiovisual installation, featuring artwork by Atsushi Fukui. A description of the installation can be found here. David has also curated an evening of music (Saturday) by a variety of artists, and will perform "Plight & Premonition" with John Tilbury, Philip Jeck, Eivind Aarset, Jan Bang and Erik HonorĂ©. The Punkt festival program sounds extremely cool in its breadth & depth; we especially like the idea of the Alpha Room, wherein "the concerts on the main stage are remixed, and the audience may listen to the remixes immediately after each concert." In case you happen to be in Norway this weekend. Meanwhile, our last two copies of the Uncommon Deities broadside are available from Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers, in Seattle.
