MONKEY BUSINESS, ETC.
On the afternoon of friday 24th we performed in the
parisian zoological garden, the Zoo de Vincennes,
dressed at our sunday's best. (I overheard at least one
of the girls among our human listeners snigger that we
ourselves were the monkees ... )
Our first set was for the zoo's community of baboons.
We then turned around for a second set, performed
explicitly for Chimène the Gibbon, a very shy ape, but
a fantastic singer.
It was very special indeed to experience the mingling of
the sounds from our dictaphones, the sound of Anthony's
guitar, that of Jean's double bass, and the metallic percussion
hit and bowed by Rebus and myself, with the sounds of the
zoo around us. The garden and the animals were like a fifth
instrument, and our performance indeed spun itself into the
intricate web of relations that we had intended, heralding in
its own modest way the transition of contemporary art into
the new altermodern era ...
** have a great day!
