Incidentally, WFMU is presently at work on the Free Music Archive, “an online digital library of music that will allow music fans, webcasters and podcasters to listen, download, and stream for free, with no restrictions, registration or fees.” Longtime readers of this weblog might have some idea how excited I am that WFMU is taking this on…
Among the Free Music Archive’s early projects is Codpaste, “in which the two artists People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz will attempt to compose collage music from the very beginning, in a “work in progress” style, attempting to open up the creative process.” The podcast will not just feature finished works but post “(i) audio sources, the tracks used as the basis for the collage in the episode, (ii) sketches, mixes and collages combining track’s elements, with added instrumentation, electronics, vocals, etc, and (iii) fragments, layers, and multitracks of the collage compositions.”
