Jim Price makes at least seventeen sounds: tooth-grinding, trills, twitters, tongue taps, hisses, grunts and has different sounds for when he bumps into something or when he’s disturbed or wounded.  He’s been a disc jockey at WFMU since 1976 and his band, NEBLUNG PRICE record all their material in an onion drying shed.  Without fatal accident, Jim has arrived to see the airbag and steam from the swelling minor.

12.02pm People Like Us - All On A Beautiful

Everything’s Tra La La.

Since 1991 British artist Vicki Bennett has been working across the field of audio-visual collage, and is recognised as an influential and pioneering figure in the still growing area of sampling, appropriation and cutting up of found footage and archives.  Working under the name People Like Us, Vicki specialises in the manipulation and reworking of original sources from both the experimental and popular worlds of music, film and radio. People Like Us believe in open access to archives for creative use. In 2006 she was the first artist to be given unrestricted access to the entire BBC Archive. People Like Us have previously shown work at Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery, The Barbican, Centro de Cultura Digital, V&A, Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, Pompidou Centre, Maxxi and Sonar, and performed radio sessions for John Peel and Mixing It. The ongoing sound art radio show ‘DO or DIY’ on WFMU has had over a million “listen again” downloads. since 2003. The People Like Us back catalogue is available for free download hosted by UbuWeb.

12:25pm Tim Maloney - Optimised

Dr. Amanda Maybelle Fisher, D.D.S., the creator of the highly popular children’s character 'Hello Crab,’ has a unique creative problem facing her - one that may require questionable use of narcotics and a most highly dubious use of higher mathematics.

Tim Maloney is an American filmmaker and animator who has made films for the band Negativland, the Walt Disney Company, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, to name the strangest bedfellows. His work has been screened at the PFA, SF MOMA, the ICA, MIT, and many other prominent places that go only by their initials.  You have guessed it; he has found a magic lamp, and instead of using it to cure world hunger or to end suffering, he selfishly employs the spirit within to dupe important people, many of them with beards, into screening his work and giving him "legitimacy.”  His specialties include animation, filmmaking, rubbing animals, and drawing obscene pictures of authority figures.

12.40pm Busy Doing Nothing with Charlie - The Better Living Show

A journey in song documenting my attempts to optimize my life through various means, and to answer the musical question: Am I a winner? 

I have a naive but unshakable belief in the potential for popular culture to express the breadth of human experience.  I have been finding meaning in popular song since I was a child.  And if I can't find meaning in a song, I will force meaning upon it by recontextualizing it.  Hence, my involvement in freeform radio, for which I have had an abiding passion since the heyday of commercial freeform in the sixties.  Thanks to freeform station WFMU, I have been foisting my musical selections and juxtapositions on the public since 1996, via my show, Busy Doing Nothing.  I am fond of music, songs, books, and movies in which not a whole hell of a lot happens. 

Sammy Davis Jr. - Some Days Everything Goes Wrong

They Might Be Giants - Alienation's for the Rich

1.30pm Gwilly Edmondez - Cramped Ambitions (Optimised for Tents)

“Cramped Ambitions” is a party-mix vignette that takes place in a campsite or any similar construction (like those of imaginary games) that we try to substitute for a ‘real thing’ (such as a hotel in the case of the campsite). Gwilly overlooks the fact that there are those who genuinely prefer to sleep in a tent rather than a room with a bed in order to focus on the absurdity over exaggerated hopeful intentions. Each mini-tableau through the 15-minute montage/mix explores a different mood of this expression, always trying to make the most out of the situation presented by the next emerging context.

Gwilly Edmondez started making recorded improvisations and using them as source material for non-notated composition in 1980 when he was thirteen years old. Since then he has applied this developmental methodology to a variety of creative situations, both as solo projects and in numerous collaborations, including Felt Beak (http://feltbeak.tumblr.com), Wild Pop (http://vimeo.com/wildpop) and Kakutopia (http://freemusicarchive.org/label/Kakutopia/). A selection of solo albums can also be found on his page at UBUWEB (http://www.ubu.com/sound/edmondez.html). Since 2004 he has taught recorded media composition and non-notated performance at Newcastle University.

1.45pm Dan Deacon - Optimized

In the 3rd week of July of 2015 I downloaded the Billboard Top 100 Singles for no particular reason. I started messing around with the songs but they basically sat in a harddrive until this project came about. The word "optimized" made me think of them. What could be more "optimized" music than the pop music designed for mass consumption? I brought all the files into Ableton Live and layered them all and started messing with the length of their transients, slowly increasing them over time making a noisy collage of focus group tested and market research approved optimized pop hits.

This is kinda like when I cook while I'm coming down from acid. Though I don't do it on a treadmill and paint at the same time
Avatar    Wed. 6/8/16 2:40pm People Like Us:

That's a great idea Aaron - unfortunately too late now to arrange, but hopefully we will get to do this again with the things we forgot to do!

Mr. Let's Paint, do you do any self-portraits ? I'm very hopeful of seeing one of the artist in-situ; threadmill, cooking and all.

Hey, did anyone see that episode of Iron Chef (Japanese version) when Iron Chef French Hiroyuki Sakai slipped and fell on his back? That's what I'm thinking of at the moment

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/8/16 2:48pm Cliff:

He did get back up on his feet, and I think he even won that episode!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/8/16 2:48pm Matt ww:

I've heard a story about a guy creating the whole of mankind from mud, so maybe it's not all that bad a starting point.

What is the name of the song that's looping? Often heard in circus scenes in movies, cartoons, etc.
  Wed. 6/8/16 2:53pm vince:

@Rick....something like "The Gladiators"...I think
  Wed. 6/8/16 2:54pm Torbjørn:

Mr. Let's Paint, have you done the math on how far you travel on the threadmilll in a single sitting ? I wonder, if you make a meal of the same calorie count that you expend on the threadmilll, you're sort of staying in the same place. Might be a though to paint a painting about.

Do I have to refresh the stream I want to see the re-run ? Right now I'm seeing the trailer
Avatar Wed. 6/8/16 3:01pm Rich in Washington:

@Vince: You were right. It's called Entry of the Gladiators. It makes sense when you hear it as a Sousa-style band arrangement, but on calliope or piano, it just makes you think of clowns juggling or something.

Torbjørn: just waiting to embed the code in and it will be in the same window(s) in a few mins
  Wed. 6/8/16 3:05pm Torbjørn:

Goody-good. I didn't catch your own production first time around today, wouldn't want to miss it.
