It Is Not Easy for Doug Engelbart to Give a Conference When Youppi and Mad Dog Are in the House

Esther B

The vinyl record is the center of this album, the result of an exploration and an application of a study of contemporary sculpture, sound art, pop culture, inspired by media art and post-structuralist philosophy. This album features a trio of famous personalities. First, there is Mad Dog Vachon, an ex-wrestler, and Youppi, the mascot of the professional baseball team, the Montréal Expos. Esther B with collaborators Aimé Dontigny, Jon Asencio, Édouard Jeunet, David Turgeon and James Schidlowsky.
