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 (!!)…

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.

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
