"Believe in me because you have heard a voice."
 From a small room, he spoke to her and she listened. It was hours 
before liberation and the start of a new war. In his letters and 
illustrated recollections, he described an entire world to her, one she 
could only begin to imagine. But now that the war is over and he has 
disappeared, she is not alone in her interest in his world with all its 
prophetic vision.

A new media narrative, which unfolds in the form of a man's literary 
remains, "Le Nouveau Western" is a story about the past, which is not 
yet passed; a mediation on memory and war in the information age.

"Le Nouveau Western" is a 2005 commission of New Radio and Performing 
Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made 
possible with funding from The Greenwall Foundation.


Tal Halpern is an interdisciplinary artist and writer whose previous 
electronic work includes "Digital Nature: the Case Collection version 
2.0" (Turbulence 2002), "Archiving Nature: Preservation Practices for a 
Digital Age" (Zentrum fur Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe 2001) 
and "Chromosome 22: Mapping the Human Genome" (C-Theory, 2000).
