In this week’s edition of ‘North By Southwest’, Nicolas Jackson attends experimental music and sound art festival Arte Oído, programmed by La Nota productions and held at Madrid’s CaixaForum cultural centre. There, he meets UK artists Philip Jeck and Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) who discuss their work and the meaning of the terms ‘experimental’ and ‘avant-garde’. We also hear about a 744-hour-long radio ‘boredcast’ and the virtues of ‘slow art’.
People Like Us will perform The Magical Misery Tour and do an artist talk in Madrid at CaixaForum. The concert will by on 17 May 2012 and the talk will be on 18 May 2012. The talk will preceed a concert by Philip Jeck.
