This music chart was published on the Issue 447 of The Wire Magazine and it was inspired by works dealing with sounds sourced from commutes to work, public transportation, sonic interpretations of landscapes adjacent to roads or train tracks, and oral testimonies around transportation infrastructures.

The Pursuit is a collection of radiophonic pamphlets on professional development, career anxiety, and mindsets for excellence. Learn how to navigate brand new advertising opportunities, implement storytelling that really works, and build a business identity that merges the real YOU with the latest landscape of corporate expectations and client satisfaction. This system works pretty well.

The Pursuit was created for the show Radio Row on WFMU and aired on January 2021.  

Radio Row on WFMU

On Jan 17, I hosted one hour of radio on Radio Row, a new show on WFMU, run by the station music director Olivia Bradley-Skill. This hour featured new radio collages under the banner of career anxiety, show business tips, and self-help. Also, featuring listener calls, and other collages taken from the piece Second Hand Third Eye.

People Like Us/Vicki Bennett is currently Hallwalls Artist in Residence at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo, NY. This residency is a multi-tier project consisting of an onsite new film called Fourth Wall and a six-channel audio collage called First Person featuring readings from her co-authored book The Fundamental Questions. In parallel to the onsite exhibition, Vicki Bennett created an online archive of new micro-commissions from collaborators across the field of visual, audio, and textual art. These works respond to the themes of first person / the fourth and can be heard and seen on this WFMU page:

Stills from “Fourth Wall” (2020) by People Like Us

For this project, I contributed with a 40-minute radio collage called Second Hand Third Eye that mixes themes related to self-image, consciousness, perception, existentialism, media theory, and extra-dimensions. The creative process for this piece started with a quick survey of academic literature anchored on selfhood and a compilation of terms orbiting the construct of self.*** This list of keywords was the starting point for creating a dedicated archive of over one thousand voice samples from radio and tv shows from the 1950s to the present day. Often contradictory, non-sensical, or meta-referential, these samples come together in a collective search for meaning, both local and cosmic. More info: wfmu.org/playlists/shows/95230
