(Scroll down for English version)

Komponis, pelaku, pembuat instrumen, jurnalis, aktivis, sejarawan, dan pelatih kayak—karya Bob Ostertag tidak dapat dengan mudah diringkas atau digolongkan. Dia telah menerbitkan 21 CD musik, 2 film, dan 3 buku. Karya musik, film, dan festival multimedianya telah dipentaskan dan didistribusikan di seluruh dunia. Dalam rangka tur dunianya, dia mengunjungi C2O, di mana dia akan membahas bukunya, Creative Life: Art, Politics, People, Machines (University of Illinois Press, 2009), pentas musik, dan memberi lokakarya tentang distribusi dan instrumen musik. Sebagai seorang jurnalis, tulisan-tulisannya tentang politik kontemporer telah diterbitkan dalam banyak bahasa. Instrumen elektronik yang ia desain sendiri berada di garda depan teknologi musik dan video.

Lahir di Albuquerque tahun 1957, ia DO dari Oberlin Conservatory setelah dua tahun, menetap di New York City pada tahun 1978 dan menenggelamkan diri dalam skena “downtown” musik periode tersebut. Dia meninggalkan musik di 1980-1981 untuk bekerja di Amerika Tengah, dengan tulisan-tulisan yang diterbitkan di Asia, Afrika, Amerika Latin, Eropa, dan Amerika Serikat. Pada tahun 1988 ia pindah ke San Francisco dan kembali aktivitas musiknya. Rekan-rekannya sangat beragam, antara lain Kronos Quartet, seniman garda depan John Zorn dan Fred Frith, heavy metal Mike Patton, jazz Anthony Braxton, punk rocker Lynn Breedlove, drag diva Justin Bond, pembuat film Pierre Hébert, dan lain-lain.


Composer, performer, instrument builder, journalist, activist, historian, kayak instructor—Bob Ostertag’s work cannot easily be summarized or pigeon-holed. He has published 21 CDs of music, 2 films, and 3 books, and appeared at music, film, and multimedia festivals around the globe. He’s visiting C2O as part of his world tour, and he will discuss his book, Creative Life: Art, Politics, People, Machines (University of Illinois Press, 2009), perform music, and give workshop on music distribution and instruments. As a journalist, his writings on contemporary politics have been published in many languages, including The Huffington Post. Electronic instruments of his own design are at the cutting edge of both music and video performance technology.

Born in Albuquerque in 1957, he dropped out of the Oberlin Conservatory after two years, settled in New York City in 1978 and immersed himself in the “downtown” music scene of the period. He left music in 1980/81 to work in Central America, and became an expert on the region, with writings published in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the U.S. In 1988 he moved to San Francisco and resumed his musical activity. His radically diverse collaborators have included the Kronos Quartet, avant garders John Zorn and Fred Frith, heavy metal star Mike Patton, jazz great Anthony Braxton, dyke punk rocker Lynn Breedlove, drag diva Justin Bond, film maker Pierre Hébert, and others. He is rumored to have connections to the shadowy media guerrilla group The Yes Men.

This event is part of his world tour. He’s also visiting other cities in Indonesia on these dates:
