It’s what we have: the written, the inscribed, the “given” –

and how we want to perform it. Or not.

written-not-written is an open platform dedicated to musical processes before and beyond the actual production of music.

How music is bound with non-musical things, signs, systems, rituals, and how it passes through medias, histories and bodies.  

All texts, sounds and images compiled in the framework of the

practice of Augustin Maurs.
