Discothèque philosophique feat. Iván Navarro
Discothèque philosophique is a listening room for music and recorded lectures, a stage for aural transmission and “critical dancing”. Expanding his concept of transmusic as recently developed at HEAD Geneva, and pursuing the investigations of his radio program §ympo§ium, Cirauqui presents this time a collaboration with artist and sound producer Iván Navarro. Occupying, like a dream of an afterlife, the French embassy’s Librairie Albertine for one night, the Discothèque philosophique will be a nightly exhibition of sound lit by Navarro’s sculpture—a dialogue of record collections in a temporary night club—a mirage at the heart of P is not Dead.
