Playlists and archives at http://wfmu.org/playlists/UP

Vicki Bennett/People Like Us has programmed 10 hours of new and exclusive recordings, radio and video that will be broadcasted on WFMU during 6-10 June 2016. These programs are part of an expanded radio stream on the New Jersey freeform radio WFMU dedicated to all things “Optimized!“. The radio shows run from noon to 3pm (EST) and are accompanied by a video stream with specially commissioned animated gifs created by Dina Kelberman. Also, live at Monty Hall John Kilduff will be  performing  “Let’s Paint TV” from 2-3pm, where he’s going to be taking listeners’ calls while simultaneously painting, cooking and running on a treadmill.

I’m happy to be participating with a new radio piece/sound collage called “Nothing On This Side” that will be broadcast on Monday, June 6th:

This is the second post in Sounding Out!’s 4th annual July forum on listening in observation of  World Listening Day on July 18th, 2015.  World Listening Day is a time to think about the impacts we have on our auditory environments and, in turn, their effects on us.  For Sounding Out! World Listening Day necessitates discussions of the politics of listening and listening, and, as Carlo Patrão shares today, an examination of sounds that disturb, annoy, and threaten our mental health and well being.   –Editor-in-Chief JS

An important factor in coming to dislike certain sounds is the extent to which they are considered meaningful. The noise of the roaring sea, for example, is not far from white radio noise (…) We still seek meaning in nature and therefore the roaring of the sea is a blissful sound. Torben Sangild, The Aesthetics of Noise
