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.

Author and Wire contributor Ken Hollings has produced a show for BBC Radio 4 on William Burroughs’s cut ups. The show traces the history of the cut up, from its roots in the Dadaist movement through Burroughs and Brion Gysin, to tape splicing and digital editing, looking at the cut up as a satirical device.
The show “Cutting Up The Cut Up” includes interviews with Armando Iannucci, Cassetteboy, Kevin Foakes (aka DJ Food), Vicki Bennett and others. It will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 25 June at 11:30am.
‘Cutcast Up-pod’ – featuring additional material from Chris Morris and Negativland – is available here.
