Koch will display his Leichte Muse, an apparatus for determining the relative weight of music(s). (It should be noted that the relative distances of music were determined by Dr. Johannes Rosenberg and his double piston, triple neck, wheeling violin of 1985.)  The exhibition will travel to the International Museum of Music in Bolgna, Italy later this month. This may be Jon Rose’s last exhibition of the Rosenbergs in Europe. More info:

This Saturday, October 4th, director Steve Elkins will be giving a presentation on his film “The Reach Of Resonance” and his new forthcoming film (currently untitled) at the Adventure Film Festival in Boulder, Colorado. He’ll discuss his experiences in extreme and remote environments around the globe documenting the incredible lengths people travel to approach the unknown, to visualize (or make audible) the invisible, to cultivate our inner image of what the world is actually like, which we then carry with us into the world to inevitably change it. Hope to see you there.

On August 29th, “The Reach Of Resonance” will make its Russian premiere in the small Siberian city of Kansk, 4500 km from Moscow in an area full of “wonderful and brave Siberian people,” pelmeni, cedar nuts, and even buses reminiscent to the old school buses of a long lost Soviet Union, a place full magic. Kansk was found on the Internet by chance and selected because Kansk in Russian is pronounced the same as Cannes. It grew as a joke….Siberia having it’s own ‘Festival de Cannes,’ that now has an international jury. Director Steve Elkins will be introducing the film to the audience via Skype, and Secret Chiefs 3 will be performing (featuring Trey Spruance of Mr. Bungle and Faith No More). More screenings in Russia will be announced soon.
