Cumulative Tails is a pun upon the ‘cumulative tale’, where each part of a story relates to that which just preceded and followed it. This radio mix, curated by Vicki Bennett, has been created using that process – a succession of audio tracks picked in conceptual relation only to that which was previously played.

Music For The Fire now online at UbuWeb

The 2010 collaboration between People Like Us & Wobbly which became the CD “Music For The Fire” is now available for mp3 download at UbuWeb.

The fruit of many years of work, this album began as People Like Us & Wobbly collected and collaged their way through various depictions of misfired communications and heartbreak sourced from popular culture for a series of live improvisations. Music For The Fire is a plunderphonic concept album depicting the lifespan of a relationship, as told through samples of hundreds of different songs and voices who had no idea they were all telling the same story until they were all spliced together.

More DO or DIY podcasts on their way

We may be taking some time off of the regular WFMU schedule, but this doesn’t mean you go without DO or DIY. We were busy earlier this year with Radio Boredcast, which included a bunch of DO or DIY and/with People Like Us radio shows. And we’ve gathered them together to be delivered weekly as part of our DO or DIY podcast on WFMU.
Over the coming weeks you will hear shows called Earworms (about those songs that get stuck in your head), 1234 (about counting and ordering of information in music and sound art), Blather (a journey through noises the mouth makes in sound art, ethnopoetics, music, comedy and beyond), Boring (where friends interviewed their children about all things boring!), Broken Music (about the manipulation of the sound source, cutting up, breaking and bending things out of shape), and a Spring Equinox show (!!)…

To subscribe go to http://wfmu.org/podcast and scroll to “Do or DIY with People Like Us”. If you are already subscribed then the episodes will arrive when you next open iTunes.

Cutting Across Media book and “Mixtape” by People Like Us

CUTTING ACROSS MEDIA by Kembrew McLeod & Rudolf Kuenzli

We highly recommend this book, which Vicki Bennett has written the back of book blurb for. More info about it here.

Download at UbuWeb http://www.ubu.com/sound/plu_collarge.html

Accompanying the book is a “mixtape” (in digital form!) of our favourite sample or sampled music. Take an epic six hour survey of audio collage with People Like Us’ Collarge, a mixtape commissioned for Kembrew McLeod’s co-edited Cutting Across Media: Appropriation Art, Interventionalist Collage, and Intellectual Property Law, which serves as a companion volume to Creative License. http://creativelicense.info/mixtape.php

Offline : DO or DIY Goes Analogue!

Offline : DO or DIY Goes Analogue!
DO or DIY, Wednesday 12th October 2011
8pm – 9pm on WFMU 91.1 fm 90.1 fm and wfmu.org

That’s correct! Did you know that since 2003 DO or DIY has never played a record OR a CD? It’s all just files, files, files. So in preparation for Singles Going Steady Week on WFMU (Oct 24-30), we’ve been crawling around under the bed and finding our old vinyl. And here’s what we found in our home LP collection. No WFMU Record Library, no online blogs, just what we found, er, under the bed, and some reflections on how different it is to do a show without the aid of the World Wide Web.

Don’t forget that October is WFMU online-only fundraising month, so it’s ironic that this is when we decided to go analogue! Tune in… and please pledge. Thank you if you have already!
