patrick brennan Artediola article excerpt: 

Among context invoking in-betweens such as essays, interviews, reviews and descriptions, it’s not that often that an artist can be so influentially positioned to shape these as in Nicole Peyrafitte’s and Miles Joris-Peyrafitte’s deft 23 minute short film, Basil King: Mirage, which ably affords this occasion to painter and poet Basil King.

Born in London in 1935, King witnessed the blitz and then some before his parents relocated the family to Detroit in 1947. Struck already by Pollock and Rimbaud, he was walking past the Detroit Art Institute’s Rivera murals for studio classes and, by 16, had arrived at Black Mountain College to learn from Charles Olson and Esteban Vincente, segueing afterwards to San Francisco and its poets, then to New York City and Gottlieb, Motherwell, Rothko, Kline, Amiri Baraka and Frank O’Hara while hearing Miles, Monk and Coltrane during these key moments of high artistic intensity in the United States. While all of that was happening, Basil King was there.

“Un Auròst” January 1 2015 at Poetry Project


Video capture Richard Berger
“Un Auròst” —with Michael Bisio on bass— at Poetry Project New Year’s Day Benefit Reading.

This tri-lingual piece was written with words from three sources. Most come via Maria Blanca (1765-1849), the last aurostaira or professional mourner — a soothsayer, in fact, & even more so a “truth-sayer.” Maria Blanca was from the Vallée d’Aspa in the French Pyrenees. The other words come via Marcabrun (1130-1150), one of the earliest troubadours & finally some are my own.

Heads up!
The full schedule of upcoming events will come up in a few weeks but save the dates for:

Nicole Peyrafitte & Sunnylynn Thibodeaux at The Poetry Project —Wednesday February 25th 8PM —Michael Bisio will be also part of my reading/performance .

& back by popular demand: the Cabaret Hérétique w/ Adrian Cohen on piano on Sunday March 8 8:30PM at Bowery Arts & Science

Chiara Mulas: born 1972 in Gavoi, Sardinia. A graduate of Bologna’s Academy of Fine Arts, she lives and works between France and Sardinia. In her multi-media work, Mulas uses a range of approaches: tableaux vivants, videos, photography, and live actions that create distinctive bonds between areas of, among others, social protest and ancestral myths. At the crossroads of cinéma vérité & fiction, the oneiric dimensions of Mulas’ work relate to societal tragedies. Her work  has been shown & performed across three continents (Quebec, China, Japan, United States, Lebanon, Morocco, Serbia, Israel, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, France).

Chiara Mulas : http://chiaramulas.fr

Serge Pey was born in Toulouse in 1950. A nomadic traveler & performance artist, he is also the author of some 40 books & has founded & directed several publishing ventures, such as TRIBU which published among others, Allen Ginsberg, Ernesto Cardinal, Pham Cong Thien, Bernat Manciet & Rafaêl Alberti. He currently directs the CIAM at the University of Toulouse-Mirail were he also teaches Poesie Action. Pey crosses the traditional boundaries between art, shamanism & theoretical thinking in his combining sound poetry, scansions, sticks & other material instruments, installations, happenings & agitprop. His is a truly ethnopoetic practice, to use the term coined by Jerome Rothenberg, a poet Pey is close to. His unique articulation of writing & sound explores the phenomena of ritual language in the oral practice of the poem. He has lived & travelled extensively in the Americas absorbing its culture & history, in a truly Artaudian quest for a visionary art.

Occitan Trobadors in NYC: a Symposium, a Banquet, a Performance

nyoctrobpostcardrgb

On Saturday, November 23, Poets House, in partnership with City Lore and NY’OC Trobadors, hosts a landmark symposium celebrating and bringing the riches of southern French poetry and culture to the American public. The symposium gathers international and local poets, artists, scholars, and performers to share the fascinating history of the region and bring to life the songs of troubadours past and present in the endangered lenga d’òc (Occitan language). Chef and foodie favorite Ariane Daguin, owner of gourmet purveyor D’Artagnan, will host a reservation-only Gascon Buffet with a short historic overview of Occitan cuisine and cooking demonstration. The evening will culminate in a music and poetry performance featuring accomplished bicontinental artists Joan Francés Tisnèr (project director), Jakes Aymonino, Domenja Lekuona, Pierre Joris, and Nicole Peyrafitte. Other presenters include New York University scholars Deborah Kapchan, Sarah Kay and Richard Sieburth, and director of Fondacion Occitània Alem Surre-Garcia.

The 11th century trobadors and trobairitz of Occitania, a region spanning the entire southern half of France (Bearn, Languedoc, Auvergne, Limousin, Provence) and encompassing the Occitan Valleys in the Italian Alps and the Aran Valley in the Spanish Pyrenees, have long inspired American poets, most notably Ezra Pound, with their lyrical, secular, and often subversive verse-commentary on the culture, politics, and love affairs of their time. Mythologized as wandering mystics, these professional poets set the stage for everything from poetic forms like the cantata and sestina to the passionate and carefully-wrought works of Joan Baez and Bob Dylan to Top 40 love songs. The Trobadors symposium celebrates and bears witness to a millennium of Occitan culture and influence around the globe.

Symposium Schedule
Opening Remarks: Richard Sieburth
2:00–3:30 PM: Topologies of Occitan Language & Culture

Buffet Gascon offered by gourmet purveyor D’Artagnan, with short historic overview of Occitan food and cooking demonstration by Ariane Daguin and Nicole Peyrafitte. Gascony is a region in Occitania known for its “sweetness of life” and is home to foie gras and Armagnac brandy.

En Route Again!

at The Taste of france

The picture above was taken on September 28-29 at The Taste of France where I had the pleasure of MC’ing the main stage for the entire weekend. The event took place at Bryant Park in NYC & one of my favorite moment was to be on stage with my occitan acolytes: Ariane Daguin (d’Artagnan) & Pierre Landet (Executive chef at Chez Felix, in NYC). Here is Ariane showing  an aiguillette de canard, or the little tenderloin part found on top of the magret de canard that you’ll never find on your plate because it’s the cook who always eats it!

Throughout the weekend many artists & chefs were featured on stage, among them Julie Andrieux (Les Carnets de Julie), an important delegation of the Maîtres Cuisiniers de France, The Metropolitan Opera singers & their director Peter Gelb.  I want to thank Abby & Guy René from the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont, without whom the cooking demos & tasting could not have happened so smoothly; also, a big thank you to the volunteers & a special mention to Alexis!

Voilà, we can move on to the next events & that will be a reading at The Shed Space in Brooklyn on Thursday — & Friday we are off to our old stomping ground in Southern California for two weeks! Check out details below .
