((o)) radiator x – 131212 – aut(h)o(r)-poetry

radia #450: the death of the authors + radia #187: les forteresses du ciel

[pls. scroll down for english version]

vom tod des autors ist immer wieder die rede. in einer kultur, die autorschaft und urheberrecht mit dem copyright beziehungsweise nutzungs- und verwertungsrechten zusammenliest, besitzt er eine ganz besondere bedeutung: als datum, das bestimmt, wann ein werk frühestens zum teil der allmende wird.

im ersten teil der sendung werden daher todestage gefeiert – beziehungsweise zum anlass einer neuen textgeneration.

im zweiten teil wird die dichtung kongenial komplettiert durch eine hommage an alain robbe-grillet.

ever heard about the death of the author? sure, for there is an ongoing debate in literature studies. however, in a culture traditionally reading authorship and copyright together, there's also a very profane, yet tremendously important reason to literally remember the date: for this one counts (again, literally) for counting towards the day the work will become accessible for the public domain.

"Every year on New Year's Day, due to the expiration of copyright protection terms on works produced by authors who died seven decades earlier, thousands of works enter the public domain – that is, their content is no longer owned or controlled by anyone, but it rather becomes a common treasure, available for anyone to freely use for any purpose.

This is a radio reading of a few pages of The Death of the Authors, James Joyce and Virginia Woolf and Their Return to Life in Four Seasons (a Constant remix). The Death of the Authors is a generative novel made with Python and nltk, based on texts by Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Rabindranath Tagore, Elizabeth Von Arnim, Sherwood Anderson and Henri Bergson, some of the authors we welcomed on 1-1-12.

The selection of the texts used for this publication is very much influenced by the availability of works online. Famous authors are easy to find, English works and translations are often available as free e-books, thanks to an initiative such as The Gutenberg Project." [P.D.J]

This publication was the first in a series. By creating a new work every year on Public Domain Day, Constant wants to give an incentive in making public works electronically available and rediscovering them.

Voices: Peter Westenberg (Spring) – Clémentine Delahaut (Summer) – Milady Renoir (Autumn) – An Mertens (Winter)
Recording and editing : Pierre De Jaeger
