Poet Frank Keizer curated an evening with presentations on listening as literary practice, with presentations by Maarten van der Graaff , Toine Horvers and others.
Frank invited me to talk about and read from my book 'Chartres, one hour of sound in a Gothic cathedral'. Due to the fact that I am at that moment in Prague, my reading will be recorded and made audible by loudspeakers, thus highlighting the item of 'listening'.

Chartres, one hour of sound in a Gothic cathedral

The book is launched at Onomatopee in Eindhoven on the 22nd of november 2013, with an introduction by Samuel Vriezen.

Both the Dutch and the English version are for sale, the price is 12 euro's.
Due to the fact that the book is, besides sound, very much about language, it is interesting to have both versions beautifully designed as a couple by Vera Bekema, for 20 €.
Order from me: toine@toinehorvers.nl or from Onomatopee: info@onomatopee.net.

Words Live 4
29th and 30st of november and 1st of december 2013.
A very successful event about the spoken word in various art disciplines.
The idea of collecting performers and audience around a huge table worked out unexpectedly well. It was an intimate and very concentrated setting in both Perdu (Amsterdam) and Wallgallery (Rotterdam)

Arf Arf Melbourne

In december 2013 I visited Marisa Stirpe and Frank Lovece, two of the initial members of the performance group Arf Arf in Melbourne. Since my first meeting with their polyphonic sound-poetry performances in Sydney, many years ago, we never lost contact, especially with Marcus Bergner who some years ago moved to Prague.
Since I have performed their Poetry together with Marcus in Rotterdam, Berlin and Prague, Marisa and Frank organized an evening with the three of us in Melbourne.
Unfortunately I dont have any pictures or sound recordings of that evening,
the performance however was an honorable experience, in connecting both Arf Arf-ends across the Pacific Ocean.
