Originally from Aix-en-Provence in the south of France, Leila Bordreuil moved to the USA to study at Bard College and now lives in Brooklyn. She will play twice at Third Edition on Friday 9th February — a duo with double bass player Zach Rowden and as part of a larger ensemble performing new works by Sean McCann. Bordreuil will also give a talk about her work at KMH at 2pm earlier the same day. We met in NYC in January and switched on the recorder whilst talking about Eliane Radigue and Leila’s recent, fraught experience interviewing the legendary composer.
In conjunction with the screening of ‘Deproduction‘ at Third Edition, Frida Sandström joined Terre Thaemlitz for a conversation over email, on the art industry, on the biographical and on the question of when a speech act becomes a performance.

Daichi Yoshikawa plays the Third Edition Festival for Other Music in a duo with French saxophonist Jean Luc Guionnet on Saturday 10 February 2018.
I first met Daichi Yoshikawa when we were both working together at Cafe OTO in London. After living in London for several years he moved to Berlin before finally returning to Japan to live in October 2017. We met up in Tokyo in early November.
“Det är bråttom. Vi får skippa förspelet. För några av er kommer det att innebära en spänd stämning av misstro, men försök ändå att ta in dessa två följande premisser.
För det första är det oetiskt att skaffa barn.
För det andra är demokrati en omöjlighet så länge det finns familjer.”
The Third Edition Festival for Other Music will hold two day time screening sessions at Klarabiografen, Kulturhuset Stadsteatern with two British film-makers who’s work frequently turns to music for inspiration and as core subject matter.
On Friday we will host a double bill of films by Luke Fowler — his recent portrait of Canadian musician Martin Bartlett (‘Electro Pythagoras’ from 2017) and his earlier widely acclaimed film on Cornelius Cardew and the Scratch Orchestra — ‘Pilgrimage From Scattered Points’.
On Sunday morning we show four films by Beatrice Gibson — including Agatha (2012) — a psychosexual sci-fi about a planet without speech based on a dream had by the radical British composer Cornelius Cardew and three more recent films which all use the William Gaddis novel ‘JR’ as their point of departure whilst taking in Stockhausen, child capitalists and radical experiments in musical pedagogy.
