GesammttkkunnsttMeshuggahhLaandtttt
A solo exhibition with artist Charlemagne Palestine, who also spent several years living and working in Rotterdam, includes early video works, sculptures, paintings, installations, and sound scores. Charlemagne Palestine works form a highly personal universe of rituals, intoxication, and shamanism. In the last four decades, the artist has created an extensive body of experimental musical compositions, bodily performances, and, in later years, visual art works that are inhabited by stuffed animals. To Palestine, teddy bears figure as powerful shamanic totems, which he fondly calls Divinities.

The Sydney Morning Herald: Welcome to 'Charleworld', June 2011

HIS best-known work (1974's Strumming Music) features two notes played in rapid alternation on a keyboard for more than 45 minutes. But don't call the US-born musician Charlemagne Palestine a ''minimalist''. ''It's a horrible title,'' he says. ''Imagine saying to your mum, 'Mum, do you love me? Yes, minimally'. It doesn't describe me at all.'' Palestine is performing in Australia for the first time at this week's Melbourne Jazz Festival.

Sensual, physical and visceral music trance - interview by Daniel Varela (June 2002)
A long neglected musician, composer, performer and visual artist, Charlemagne Palestine is only recently recognized as a driving force in experimental music scene. Through many years of his recordings have been so difficult to obtain and his performances involving long sound masses could be heard only as an obscure story-telling. His early work with carillon and electronic sustained drones has given place to his better known piano work in the seventies, concerts in which many times Palestine bleed his own hands after an exhilarating playing technique. After years of retirement doing visual installations and traveling, the nineties has been more friendly with Palestine. Many young musicians value his work and some small independent record labels are particularly diligent with remarkable releases of his work. This interview was done in Barcelona, in November 2000 during LEM festival of experimental music. Many quotes will drive interested people to many other items Palestine-related.
