Torpedo Seminar/Marking The Dispossessed





Torpedo arranged last week a seminar celebrating their 10th anniversary. How To Raise A Teenager was held at Kunstnernes Hus April 22.-23.
Corinne Gerber (Cologne/Montréal) from Passenger Books presented one of their resent publications Marking The Dispossessed by Danielle Aubert.
In this fascinating book Aubert has compiled hundreds of isolated reader's marks found in a collection of used copies of Ursula K. Le Guin's 1974 anarchist science fiction novel, The Dispossessed. Erasing the text, only leaving the marks behind. It also has the potential of being a score; it has been performed as polyphonic group readings, (where each reader is reading from a different copy), and as an instrumental interpretation of the markings, composed by Jason Treuting of So Percussion and Mobius Percussion. The various readers' marks has also been compiled into a book.
