GeneralAll arts generally, getting lost in hiking...
BooksAll of them are worth a glance. I also adore books as things to be held in your hand in the sensuality of their shape and smell...
I'm a lawyer/writer/journalist from Belgium. I just published a book about TUXEDOMOON, a San Francisco band - they were signed by the legendary Residents' Ralph Records label - that relocated in Europe in the eighties where, after composing a ballet score for Maurice Béjart, they started their endless wandering story around the globe. Over the last few years I got to know these beautiful people composing this band and working on this biography has been a pleasure of every instant. If you don't know them yet, take a little bit of your time to discover their music and their story that is a tale of our times of nomadism.
LATEST NEWS ABOUT THE BOOK: ISBN number: 978-1-906496-08-1. The title of my book is Music For Vagabonds: The Tuxedomoon Chronicles
THE BOOK IS NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON! Here: www.amazon.com and then enter isabelle corbisier in the search box.
The book can ALSO be ordered on www.amazon.co.uk (UK), www.amazon.fr (France), www.amazon.de (Germany), www.amazon.ca (Canada) and amazon.co.jp (Japan).
Of course you do not need to be located in the aforementioned countries to order on any of the amazon websites listed above. But ordering from the site that is closest to your own country might reduce the delay for delivery. My book being however printed in the USA and in the UK, ordering from either the American or the UK site might be the quickest route.
The book can as well be found on the websites of some local online sellers. It would be too long to list them all here but just google using vagabonds AND tuxedomoon AND corbisier as search quest and you'll find them. Prices offered and delivery delays can be significantly different. So it's worth spending a little time on this.
For those living in Italy, the book can be ordered from the label distributing Tuxedomoon's recordings in Italy, namely Materiali Sonori: http://www.matson.it/html/bigcatalogue.asp
For those living in Brussels, the book is also available at the following bookshops:
- Darakan, 9 rue du Midi, 1000 Brussels
- Bozar Shop, 15 rue Ravenstein, 1000 Brussels

The background photo I use is a fragment of a Steven Brown shot that I made in early 2006 during a Tuxedomoon gig in Belgium.
The background music you can hear is an excerpt from Tuxedomoon's Ghost Sonata album played live by two members of the band, Steven Brown & Blaine Reininger.
Below, a slide show including some of my Tuxedomoon stage pictures, shot between 2003 and now.
Who I'd like to meet:
Open-minded people, of the sort who'd think that sharing a life between the technicalities of legal science and the sensibilities of the art world is just an obvious way to be.
