Mail-art by Jude Weirmeir (San Diego, California, USA)

A big “Howdy” and a deep “Much Appreciated” goes out to San Diego-based musician Jude Weirmeir for sending us a copy of his a-mazing Subscription Opus zine (Issue 56 Maze Music). We were hitherto unaware of Jude Weirmeir and this FAB project where mail-art, performance and event scores (along with other elements, no doubt) seamlessly intersect in classic yet inventive intermedia fashion.

Subscription Opus Issue 56 is printed on a large, single sheet of heavy paper folded and sliced to create a total of 16 panels that passes easily through the postal system. When the recipient opens the missive, one side (or eight panels) reveals the a-mazing “Maze Music”: an intricate and totally fascinating work. A section is shown above.

The remaining eight panels are devoted to colorful prints and relevant information. We think this (above) is Jude Weirmeir.

We are thrilled to have this wonderful zine that so skillfully connects music, performance and mail-art.
