Experiments in Terroir Best of DO or DIY (Audio)
Apr 07, 2020
Created by Vicki Bennett (2017). Introduced by Karen Werner.
British audio-visual collage artist Vicki Bennett, aka People Like Us, is well known for her sampling, appropriating, and cutting up of found footage and archives. From her bio: “Embedded in her work is the premise that all is interconnected and that claiming ownership or an ‘original’ or isolated concept is both preposterous and redundant.” People Like Us has an ongoing sound art radio show called DO or DIY on WFMU, the New Jersey radio station famous for its freeform style where the radio show itself is a creative, experimental form. The following excerpt of Vicki Bennett’s radio artistry comes from a release called Experiments in Terroir – Best of DO or DIY with People Like Us 2017.
