PEOPLE LIKE US & POREST – OPTIMIZED! [CREP49]
People Like Us “All On A Beautiful Day”

Porest “The Parallel Broadcasts”
Shipping November 2017


All On A Beautiful Day/Parallel Broadcasts including shipping – please scroll to correct shipping amount for your country:




The Parallel Broadcasts presents Porest’s recordings from the covert sector of his archives. Culled from shortwave and FM broadcasts, these selections were intercepted via prepared radio – finely tuned to receive what is known in certain circles as parallel broadcasting. Content explores the trauma of emerging global consciousness, acute cultural antipology and the urgent placement of democratic music today.
Recorded on location in Jan/Feb, 2016 – Featuring contributions from Paul Staufenbiel and Michael Darr

All On A Beautiful Day was recorded in Spring 2016 by People Like Us for “Optimized!” – a week-long online a/v radio station programmed by Vicki Bennett, housed on WFMU.org which experimented with ideas of what radio might be in the world of high speed internet broadcasting. The content included 26 new a/v artist works, including both this and Porest’s Parallel Broadcasts, where people were invited to respond to the word “optimized”.

Gone, Gone Beyond – Q&A

Featured

The new 47-minute immersive 360 film “Gone, Gone Beyond” by People Like Us will World Premiere in San Francisco this 11-14 October 2017 at Recombinant Festival at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. Developed in collaboration with Recombinant Media Labs, Gone, Gone Beyond will screen in Cinechamber, a 10 screen/8 speaker space with seamless wrap around projection and surround sound, where the audience sit inside. Gone, Gone Beyond uses appropriated edited collage sewn together in a giant patchwork. Pull on a thread and watch whole new narratives expand and unravel all at once on a 360 palette. 

The following conversation was conducted between Vicki Bennett and WFMU DJ and artist Hearty White in September 2017.

GONE, GONE BEYOND – New immersive 360 Movie by People Like Us

Featured

A new 360 degree immersive film “GONE, GONE BEYOND” by People Like Us will World Premiere in San Francisco 11-14 October 2017 at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.  The film will screen daily from the 11-14th inclusive.  We have been making this movie for Recombinant Media Labs own Cinechamber for quite some time now – it is a 47-minute stand alone piece that you watch and listen to from the inside.  It is a work in progress, and this is Stage 1.  Stage 2 will premiere in 2018.

“Hey, hey, have you ever tried… reaching out to the other side?”
Gone, Gone Beyond is a 47-minute immersive a/v spatial cinema work by People Like Us, which breaks the rectangle, smashing the thin screen into tiny fragments, looking beyond the frame, climbing through to see what’s behind.  Gone, Gone Beyond uses appropriated edited collage sewn together in a giant patchwork. Pull on a thread and watch whole new narratives expand and unravel all at once on a 360 palette.

Under the name “People Like Us,” artist Vicki Bennett has been making work available via CD, DVD and vinyl releases, radio broadcasts, concert appearances, gallery exhibits and online streaming and distribution for 25 years. She sees collage and appropriation as folk art sourced from the palette of contemporary media and technology, with all of the sharing and cross-referencing incumbent to a populist form. Embedded in her work is the premise that all is interconnected and that claiming ownership of an “original” or isolated concept is both preposterous and redundant.

Q&A with Hearty White: http://peoplelikeus.org/2017/gone-gone-beyond-qa/
