Sweet (Sounds) All Around

You know spring has really arrived when it’s time to put manure down on the fields. It is not so much irony as a perfect juxtaposition that, as we continue to expand KadmusArts’ technology, when the wind blows in the right direction our studio is filled with the sweet smell of manure from the surrounding fields. Aren’t we all searching for the perfect balance between high-tech and nature?

Our newest tech tool on the site is podcasting. Our interviews are also available on iTunes if you want the option to download any or all of them — for free.

There is a nice connection between our first two interviews: both Brian Pulver and WÅ‚odek Staniewski have been building communities. Brian has one of those ideas which is such a natural extension of the festival spirit that we hope it will be repeated and expanded for many more festivals around the globe. WÅ‚odek’s work has always sprung from a determined integration into a community’s daily life, as well as its art. Check out his book (with Alison Hodge), Hidden Territories for a fascinating account of how this process works.

Building our community is an essential part of the interviews. If you have anyone you think we should interview - let us know. If you would like to send in your own interview for posting, send us the information and we will get back to you.

If you want to continue the “conversation” from the interviews, use our Forum to give feedback and exchange ideas. We’ll be sure to let our interviewees know about any posts so as to invite a direct response to you.

The interviews are another aspect of KadmusArts’ festival possibilities: to build, sustain, and promote the Festival community.

Nice to feel connected to so many — though, aren’t you glad you can’t smell us right now?
