To Petrarca is a book and CD set, consisting of a sound diary, an original sound piece culled from Jonas Mekas’ personal archives, originally broadcast on radio France Culture on June 29th, 2003. It is expanded in the accompanying book by his personal drawings, photos and correspondence. In this work, Jonas Mekas offers us images and sounds following a structure similar to his pioneering film diaries.
The sound piece To Petrarca, a free CD included in this book, was commissioned by the Atelier de Création Radiophonique (ACR) de France Culture, with the support of the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) and the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, as part of a public commission. www.franceculture.com
