    londoners should hold a motorway service station wake or maybe something at blue water. a servce station party would be a great way to see him off.

    The South of France is more appealing.

    Default Rolling JG Ballard tribute ...

    By yesterday things have shaped up considerably for JG Ballard tribute of sorts.
    Actual dates to be decided but so far we have :

    * JGB's works:
    Atrocity Exhibition. ( At least the first 5 Chapters as primer, possibly growing to more over time )
    Time, Memory and Inner Space essay.
    Considering an excerpt from Super Cannes and / or another early piece

    * WFMU ( NJ/ NYC area ) onboard as one place to record and
    broadcast a collection of JGB narrations and live scores ...
    One narrator onboard is Judy Nylon.
    Looking for that male narrator for "Atrocity Exhibition" chapters 1-5 ...

    * Resonance FM ( cheers Johnny ) will 'cast it for London.
    I would like for the London tribute to potentially be an 'All UK' thing,
    and so far Mark Fisher /K- Punk has put up a remix of the "Drowned World" sound project from his londonunderlondon for inclusion ...

    * The Ballardian site's Simon S has expressed his interest in doing something he will line up and collaborating with us.
    Always liked his site and it did become a locus of JGB eulogies, notes, comments and those nice student film shorts based on JGB works ...

    * We are looking into possible Berlin /Germany based editions as well as Tokyo based edition in the weeks to come ...

    * More details to come; hope to be confering with Simon from Ballardian on some matters and am curious myself as to a possible role for JGB's publishers,
    making some hard or soft document(s) of the whole thing,
    whether to take up offer to do performance of the narrations/ live scores here,
    the schedule for rest of year ...

    Default AtroCities ...

    Cool, cheers Nomos.
    Yes, it's a bit of an ad hoc team; voice talent from our network,
    feedback with Simon Sellers @ Ballardian -and an evergrowing array of contributors as we take it global.
    More London -with an eye towards doing more 'live' ,
    and Berlin Ballard fans give a ring !
    Open for dystopian business.


    Damn it's humid today ... (NYC)
