"I hate art galleries"

oyeah, art galleries. i never learn any lesson, don't i? no, i don't. so in eindhoven it was the opening of some art space and i forgot my lesson at the fucking appel with wander years ago (sorry freek for being so blatantly stupid). but visual artists just don't like sound art, music. they want to be entertained. if not, they talk. on end. probably on their color schemes, multimedia projects or whatever abstract and theoretic they thought of now, but more likely how to skam any grant for their drinking habits. and there is always a fat guy turning down the volume because he can't himself talk. probably a 'musician'. well, a big fuck you to. may all art be erased right now. wiped off the face of the planet. the best music piece is an art gallery on fire.

I just returned from an art gallery scouting trip to Holland. My friend owns a gallery here in the Seattle and wanted to find Dutch visual artists who might be interested in showing with him. I couldn't believe the music being played. Truly bad. And in the ten days of meeting people and talking, no one had heard of Goem or Audio.nl. Why the disconnect?

Ah, yes, De Appel gallery performance. Already a part of Wander´s legend. For not-too-good reasons. Horrible atmosphere, horrible people, horrible music (courtesy of those wankers VVM - or what were they called?). Disgusting evening all round. BURN THE GALLERIES! BURN THE WANKERS WHO RUN / VISIT THEM! Cough, cough, splutter. The WORST gig I've ever done (and I've done some bad ones - laughing now). Love, Freek (and a major hello to Howie)

still it's strange that open minded seem to have closed of ears...

with respect to the ones who listen...

greetings,
Freek
