june 21-24 Rome festival of comics drawn and printed art

It's like this: You come home from CRACK! and you're happy. A little bit like you're still on CRACK! mentally. This happiness lasts for a few weeks sometimes. It's not that you want to go back but more like you never really left the Forte. The rest of the year you do what you can to make the rest of the world a better place. Around December usually, you start thinking about going back. A feeling that gets more intense as June gets closer. You start to plan for the next one, try to think of a bigger, better contribution. You want to return to the family, return home. CRACK! is the real world, the rest is just inbetween.

Mattias Elftorp
The destructive character sees nothing permanent. But for this very reason he sees ways everywhere. Where others encounter walls or mountains, there, too, he sees a way. But because he sees a way everywhere, he has to clear things from it everywhere. Not always by brute force; sometimes by the most refined. Because he sees ways everywhere, he always stands at a crossroads.
Walter Benjamin

david chazam



Compositore omnidirezionale, di base a Bruxelles, David Chazam lavora su diversi paradigmi musicali come: la danza contemporanea, il teatro, film appassionanti e club selvaggi. Construisce lui stesso i suoi propri strumenti, ed ha collaborato con pionieri dell'electro pop come Jean Jacques Perrey e con l'artista Christian Boltanski. Uno dei suoi ultimi progetti sorprendenti: la costituzione di un cabinet di consultazione musicale. Il tempo passa ma il vostro Chazam continua a fare dei pezzi electropop, dei concerti in solo o con altri e fatti di altre cose. Un insulto al buon gusto, un ode all'energia.
