Documentation Video: Optimized! Expanded Radio & Artist Residency at WFMU

From 6-10 June 2016 Vicki Bennett and John Kilduff were Artists in Residence at freeform radio station WFMU in Jersey City, NJ, USA. This residency consisted of “Optimized!” – a week-long online a/v radio station 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 commissions selected and programmed by Vicki Bennett, where people were invited to respond to the word “optimized”, John Kilduff’s live “Let’s Paint TV” daily video show which combines, painting, cooking and exercise, and an evening at the station with an in-house studio audience.

This documents just some of what went on. The rest is archived at wfmu.org/playlists/up

Interview on Soundproof, ABC Radio National

Recently did a great radio interview with ABC Radio National‘s Miyuki Jokiranta on the program Soundproof – it broadcast earlier today in Australia and is now online here.

LISTEN http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/soundproof/8july/7499576

Broadcast Friday 8 July 2016 9:05PM

Radio Yaks: A Soundproof series in which eminent producers and sonic luminaries from around the world share audio they’re crazy about, and tell us why.

Since 1991 British artist Vicki Bennett has been working across the field of audio-visual collage, and is a pioneer in the area of sampling, appropriation and cutting up of found footage and archives.

For her Radio Yak, she chooses a palate of music, film and radio that start out familiar but end up somewhere… strange.

Vicki’s playlist:
Dalek Relaxation Tape
Dave Soldier and Komar and Melamid — The People’s Choice Music: The Most Unwanted Song
Dondero High School — Satellite of Love
Stephan Dillemuth — Urban Folkdance, New landscapes, Yesterday’s Cloud and Some of Your Favourite Birdsongs
Christo Graham — Heaven on their Minds, Muppet Christ Superstar
People Like Us — Who’s Watching Who, Citation City
Adam Bohman — At Home (White Sauce Without for Those Who Don’t)
