This publication has arisen from the project Analphabet Orchestra, which uses musical practice...

This proposal, which is to be developed during 2015 in a number of different locations, consists of a programme of talks, a number of sessions of the Analphabet Orquestra project and publication on the idea of the position of the author (and therefore of the spectator) in which the work presented is not a single result because it is made in order that it continue and parallel to the “between media” course, which means relocating the reference or subject in order to reach other, new ones.

As an excuse, in the programmes, we take the publication as genre, as an element that visualises, transforms and contaminates their own contexts as well as others:

16 May 10:30 Intro 11:00 Casco 16:00 Azucena Vieites 18:00 Blanca Calvo+Ion Munduate, Mugatxoan
17 May 11:00-19:00 Analphabet Orquesta session 7, with all the guests and other participants.
26 November, within the Bulegoa project “el libro que esta por venir”: Aziza Harmel with Ayna/Gelen Alcántara with Jeleton/leelatu + Analphabet Orquesta session 9.

The Analphabet Orquestra sessions practise and defend the illiterate position as a potential state in which there is not an established language. In the form of a workshop and through examples of artistic, cinematographic works… it involves converting these into musical forms without knowing how to.

Until now, the results of each session have not been worked on to increase their visibility, except for the result of the last session (session 6 in Espacio Puerta –Bilbo-) which was the recording of an original song followed by an imitation (while still listening to the original) and followed by a version with the participants. In this edition, the result of the work led to the idea of juxtaposing the backs. The imitation was the back of the original and vice versa. This indicates to me that the back of each programme and session could also be printed, full of folds shaped by each participant. 

eremuak supports the publication that emerges from all of this and with the contributions of guests with the result that the contents produced may be published in printed form for those who do not attend and so that these can be used as continuous working material(for each participant).

The guests are, among others:

CasCo (Utrecht): Yolande Van Der Heide (Casco coordinator) and Janine Armin, (writer, publisher and collaborator of Casco)
Azucena Vieites (Madrid): plastic artist.
Ion Munduate+Blanca Calvo -Mugatxoan (Madrid-Donostia): art project; the latest productions are in the form of publications.
Aziza Harmel (Tunez-Berlin): artist, graphic designer.
Gelen Jeleton (Murcia-Mexico): artist.
Jesús Jeleton (Barcelona): artist, bookseller.
Jorge Nuñez (Bilbo): Artist.
