The book is a collection of fifty-five short tales and fifty-five brief music pieces composed by a momentary collective of eighteen musicians. The texts are an assortment of tales written or compiled by diverse authors (from Lucian of Samosata to Virginia Woolf, Emanuel Swedenborg to Blaise Cendrars). There are stories of walking trees, burning dresses, illnesses mysteriously cured, and deaths surprisingly reversed. The music consists of sonic readings and reactions to the stories. Book with 2 CDs and enhanced eBook in english and spanish.
Editor Reinaldo Laddaga, co-curated by Unsounds. Design and illustrations Isabelle Vigier

KAO make & play is a process based creative platform combining visual and physical expression. For kids age 8/13. The participants invent characters, painting big faces on large brown paper bags; these will be the starting point for multiple explorations. Story-making, sound-making, movement and performance, are based on improvisation, observation, dialogue.
Isabelle Vigier (artistic direction/visual artist) Makiko Ito (performer/choregrapher) Anne LaBerge and Jochem van Tol (musician and performers)

Game and crowd composition

Sounds can be uploaded to an ever-expanding bank of sonic spaces. MAZE/trail adds them to a network which can be navigated through in endless ways, choosing paths and listening to the soundscapes created by the users. The game was also used as a score by ensemble Maze.

Set of 6 postcards, edition of 500, 2013
In the Golden Seaside / Souvenir of Famagusta, I obliterate all human presence from postcard views of Famagusta. The deserted images capture the moment, at once real and imaginery, where, in July 1974 the resort was evacuated, and the place stood still. The collection belongs to and was published with ‘Resort & Ruins’, Yannis Kyriakides, Unsounds cat,n. 33U
