This web place keeps track of the practice of Augustin Maurs.
It explore how music is bound with non-musical things, signs, systems, rituals and how it passes through medias, histories and bodies. How we deal we what is written, inscribed, “given”, and how we want to perform it, or not.

The selected texts, sounds and images compiled here came about through different musical manifestations, from minimal interventions to large scale curatorial projects.
