Cyber Folk: Digbee’s Electronic Chronicle (2019)

2 January 2020, dusan

Cyber Folk: Digbee’s Electronic Chronicle gives a thorough look into a unique, highly personal approach to musical electronic instrument building, an approach that is many things: naïve, enthusiastic, sincere, alien, and familiar. This strange future/primitive work journal contains the release of tons of data, beautiful photos, schematics, building techniques, and the inside stories behind many of Digbee’s most beloved instruments.

Also inside are artist features for Digbee’s favorite musical electronic practitioners. Within are never-before-published photos and stories of the work of Craig Anderton, Charles Cohen, Michael Johnsen, and Nautical Almanac’s Twig Harper and Carly Ptak.

Peppered throughout the book are examples of connected imagery from comic books and science fiction illustration.

This book was not written for a specific niche. Anyone with a curious mind and interest in musical electronics, experimental music, art, and craft will find a place of connection.

Cyber Folk: Digbee’s Electronic Chronicle is produced by Harpy Gallery and Selfish 60 Studio for the art exhibition entitled New American Instruments which was up from July 20th to August 10th, 2019.”

Temporary Services: Publishing in the Realm of Plant Fibers and Electrons (2014)

14 September 2019, dusan

“This is an idiosyncratic guide to self-publishing. We think that self-publishers should craft their own hybrid publishing and distribution solutions. This booklet, we hope, is an aide for those curious about the process and who may want to start doing their own publishing.

Temporary Services has been actively thinking about, making, talking about, selling, and giving away publications for over 16 years. We have written or said things in interviews and lectures about our publishing, but we have never sat down to craft a long-form essay about our efforts and where they fit in the larger world of artist books, artist publishing and book making. This booklet is an attempt to articulate our ideas about publishing, particularly in light of the current post-digital environment.”
