Byzantine Cadillac Byzantine Cadillac is part of a continuing effort to seamlessly integrate fundamental Eastern and Western musical elements in contemporary popular music, not through pastiche or cartoon juxtaposition, but by working from the properties of sound itself and ancient ideas that existed before there even was an "East" or "West". The music is tuned to 5- and 19- limit Just Intonation, sometimes branching off into related non-octave tunings, but the modalities employed are not restricted in ways traditionally associated with Just Intonation. By synthesizing and recording all sounds with an ear on the tuning, it is possible to use complet  chromaticism and other modern techniques in a very smooth way- in other words, timbre, melody and rhythm are interrelated from the very beginning to the overtones of the instruments. The one (more or less) equal-tempered instrument used, the guitar, is layered into a detuned "chorus", blurring the sense of pitch in order to work with the other, not equally tempered, instruments.  Working this way, and using a melodic approach to rhythm (i.e., one can sing all the rhythms), the effect is such that only skilled musicians even notice that this "popular-sounding" music is built entirely of foreign elements unknown in pop.

PEGLA – when ironing is relaxation, fun and pleasure
PEGLA – when ironing is sociable, joyful and happy
PEGLA – when ironing is  visible, audible and educative 

PEGLA again provides ironing with sociability, joy and happiness... ironing is fun!

PEGLA /IRON is an intermedia installation of interactive ironing using computer supported multimedia and the Internet. It is highly suitable for practical use at home and in housekeeping. It is composed of a standard iron and ironing board, both modified into interfaces - the iron assumes the role of mouse and the ironing boards of mouse pad - that can be used for drawing, creating music or browsing the Internet.

PEGLA can also be a performance realised as a concert and live drawing, either as an individual or a group - PEGLA orchestra. At the same time you can print your works of art and hang them on the wall to show them proudly to your family, friends and neighbours. You can compose your favourite tune and draw the most beautiful picture to make the whole family proud. Even greater pleasure will be ensured by common music playing and drawing, both locally within the family as well as through the Internet with friends, neighbours and acquaintances.

PEGLA at the same time enables us to learn ironing as the software interface can be used to learn ironing at various levels, from the easiest one (sheet) through various levels (trousers, skirts, blouses) to the most difficult one (plissé female blouse).With PEGLA we bring the love for this activity back to each house, each flat and each housekeeping. Ironing should again become a creative activity that entertains the whole family. Using this type of ironing, the artistic project also stimulates man to emancipate.

PEGLA again provides ironing with sociability, joy and happiness... ironing is fun!
