Les fantômes du bal / Bertrand Labarre
Introducing a friend is something critical. The problem, when you do it on a blog is that you may leave a trace of you incompetence. Since I’m aware of such a catastrophe which could result from a too restrictive description of his humble person, i would rather describe how i met Bertrand.
It was in October, last year. He was performing, as part of the “festival de poche”, a concert i was part of the audience. Later, I and a few friend saved the birthday party of his beloved “Cath”, he joined the “club des amateurs de bon vins et films chiants” and appeared to be some person that one could have a decent mind and was able to both speak and express himself with well shaped an thought argument.

“A journey trough digital culture realms across experimental creative practices”
This is how Urzhiata blog depicts itself. I tend to extend this description by adding to it. Yet it is what it is said to be but it is more than this. A place to learn and study. A place to learn how to hack into digital media and find informations on events around that very domain.
The blog offers tutorial and review on technologies such as pure-data, processing, ffmpgeg … it deals with video, audio and image creation / manipulation…
Here is a nice website for those who seeks quality tutorial and news related to open-source graphic tools and practice. Unfortunately, you, my non french readers, might not benefit from the talent of this site’s editors. But its some place that i recently discovered and quite enjoy as part of my daily news browsing. Reviews are concise and informative, tutorials are quite explicit and straightforward wile the skill scale is appropriate – The authors don’t over evaluate the difficulty of the techniques they feature -and the overall approach is more art than technology oriented. Its a delight to browse and learn from. A must in the blogosphere when it comes to graphic works.
