Finally I've joined a band. We have our first rehearsal tomorrow in Berlin and our first, and probably last performance on Friday. The ambition is to place several footnotes into a song.

The Readymades, or part of it, uses footnotes. They were nice to write. People have been telling me of Nabokov's Pnin, but I've never read it. I think a reader can feel a sense of the make-belief in footnotes and a writer can get lost in them.

But the other band members are certainly interesting and more talented at all this than I am, check them out.

—A team to operate in places for common negotiation such as iconographic, musical and literary repertories. To propose self-teaching practices and publishing of provisory results for debate. To subject authorship to situations of inexperience/humour/appropriation. To disperse the results through space, time and the distribution channels, so to hinder their deactivation by the presentation context.

—Jeleton's activity has been incorporated in public art research projects, exhibitions, documentary projects, workshops (recently "Manifesta 8", Murcia, 2010; CA2M, Móstoles, 2010; Casa Vecina, Mexico City, 2010; MACBA, Barcelona, 2010; Le Centquatre, Paris, 2009; Abisal, Bilbao, 2008) and has been supported by grants and research funds (recently Generalitat de Catalunya, Barcelona, 2008).

Jeleton (text, vinyl record)
performance + opening
Turntable Piece

Artistic team Jeleton makes annotations on cultural consensus through
drawing, performance, music or writing. The term turntable is for a vinyl
record player but also for a revolving table or a turn alternator. Their
"turntable pieces" are exercises on how to perform a vinyl record, how can
be reactivated the listening or receiving situation of a prerecorded
message. Talking to the records, reading texts to them, manipulating them
through scratch.
