farewell to david-baptiste chirot

It’s impossible for me to say how sad I feel in reading now that artist and friend David-Baptiste Chirot has passed away.

We started talking, and exchanging works via the net, in 2006-2007, if I’m not wrong.
He’s been contributing for years to my blogs, like fluxishare.blogspot.com, and free online editions (like differxhost: https://it.scribd.com/doc/22212352/D-B-Chirot-Killer-Chrome or gammm: https://it.scribd.com/doc/22218970/chirot-death-from-this-window or slowforward: https://slowforward.net/2009/07/26/david-baptiste-chirots-ghost-dancers/).

Farewell, David. I’ll go on admiring your works and sharing them.

orphic tabs or sheets / differx. 2007-2020

One of my first flarfy & spam-derived “orphic tabs” (or “orphic sheets”) was published by the late William James Austin in 2007, in his mag “BLACKBOX”, Sept. 2007, the “summer collisions” issue.

About that issue I could only find an email in the Spidertangle newsletter, Sept. 16, 2007.
(The old link williamjamesaustin.com/orphicsheet002.html doesn’t work anymore, of course).

Other pieces appeared in Starfishpoetry, and Poetry Kessel-lo (two now offline sites).

Find others in The Flux I Share (Jan., 2008): ex fluxishare.blogspot.com/2008/01/orphic-tab-029.html now http://the-flux-i-share.blogspot.com/2008/01/orphic-tab-029.html; & in SayingSomething: http://sayingsome.blogspot.com/2008/01/orphic-tab-040.html

Then serious asemic orphic tabs appeared in The New Postliterate (Sept., 2009): http://thenewpostliterate.blogspot.com/2009/09/asemic-orphic-sheets-from-marco.html

A sheet in Italian has appeared in facebook only.

Here below are some of the pieces, and more ones (click to enlarge, read & enjoy):
