Radio Boredcast is archived at WFMU where you can listen to all 744-hours of this online radio project that ran continuously for the Festival month. WFMU is the longest-running freeform radio station in the US. Information about the programme schedule for this day is listed below. The Radio Boredcast archive can be listened to here.

SAT 31 MARCH: 12.00AM

1234 is a show all about counting in music, sound art, poetry and lunacy.

DO or DIY is a freeform sound art radio show broadcast weekly by Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) on WFMU. The philosophy behind the show is simple. That within the realms of avant-garde and experimental sound art the goalposts defining "accessible" and "inaccessible" are constantly moving. As the radar rises and dips, fragments and shards of underground creations unearth, and popular culture and artist resonate, shifting shapes accordingly with one another in reflections of changing spotlights. Each show consists of collages made of sound works from the 20th and 21st century, often layered and looped many times over, resulting in an album type effect on each show.

SAT 31 MARCH: 12.49AM

Poet Kenneth Goldsmith presents selections from UbuWeb, the learned and varietous online repository concerning concrete and sound poetry, experimental film, outsider art, and all things avant-garde.

SAT 31 MARCH: 1.10AM

1. Vexations [LTMCD 2389]
Sometime around 1893, Erik Satie penned a short modal bass theme with two variations - three lines of music and scarcely one hundred notes, but with the suggestion that they are to be repeated eight-hundred and forty times. The score has two enigmatic legends; one concerns the order in which the bass theme and the variations are played, while the other reads:
"Pour se jouer 840 fois de suite ce motif, il sera bon de se préparer au préalable, et dans le plus grand silence, par des immobilités sérieuses [In order to play the motif 840 times in succession, one would do well to prepare oneself in advance, and in the deepest silence, by serious immobilities."
A full run through the 840 repetitions runs about one full day (24 hours).  This selection, featuring Alan Marks in a performance from the late 1980s, include 1/21st of the whole - 40 repetitions - in just under 70 minutes.

2. The Well-Tuned Piano 81 X 25 6:17:50 - 11:18:59 PM NYC [Gramavision 79452, 1987]
For decades, La Monte Young kept his tuning system a closely guarded secret, until Kyle Gann sat down with a calculator and an adjustable synthesizer and worked it out [see "La Monte Young's The Well-Tuned Piano," Perspectives of New Music 31: 1 (Winter 1993): 134-162].  Whether or not you understand the structure of perfect fifths and pure minor sevenths, or exactly what is improvised and what is structured, just one hour of the multi-hour extension quickly suspends time.  This recording is from the 5-CD Gramavision set, with the composer at the keyboard, recorded in late October, 1981.

3. Kyema: Intermediate States [XI 103, 1991]
Elaine Radigue's Kyema, from her Trilogie de Mort for analogue Arp synthesizer. Taking its inspiration from the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the six intermediate states are: Kyene (Birth), Milam (Dream), Samten (Contemplation), Chikai (Death), Chonye (Clear Light), Sippai (Becoming)

4. A snippet of Leif Inge's Beethoven Stretch.

5. []
Two hours of a youtube video stretching the Flight of the Bumblebee to over nine-thousand percent its original length. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee" is excerpted from Act III of the opera Tsar Saltan, and has recently inspired musicians to perform the work too quickly (world record speed guitar playing in 2008 and 2011, by Tiago Della Vega and John Taylor, respectively; Canadian violinists in 2010 and 2011 by Oliver Lewis and the aptly named Eric Speed, respectively) but this version goes in the opposite direction, taking what others have performed in a minute as the source for a one-hundred-and-thirty minute drone.  The same poster, "hollohill" also has a file of a Rick Roll extended by almost as much.

Craig Dworkin is the author of Dure (Cuneiform, 2004), Strand (Roof, 2005), and Parse (Atelos, forthcoming). A suite of his poetry in translation was featured in Pleine Marge (no. 39). He teaches at the University of Utah, where he also edits The UbuWeb Anthology of Conceptual Writing and Eclipse.

SAT 31 MARCH: 3.04AM

Around the age of 11 or 12 I became obsessed with the comic operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan. This fascination lasted around 3 years. There were posters of W.S. Gilbert (the "S" stands for Schwenck, rather spectacularly) and Arthur Sullivan on my bedroom wall. For years the thought of returning to their works "from memory" has been at the back of my mind. My very boring contribution to Radio Boredcast is "acappella" versions of the G & S operettas "HMS Pinafore", "Iolanthe", "The Pirates of Penzance" and "The Mikado".

Some of them I know better than others. In the cases where I didn't know the melodies, I made them up or roughly talked through them. I also decided to not use different voices for characters, and to omit stage directions, so we are left with a very boring barrage of Victorian words, tuned and untuned, from my tired, monotone voice.

Ergo Phizmiz is a composer, writer, and multimedia artist. He makes pop, theatre, installations, opera, radio-art, radioplays, sound-collages and performances. He lives in Bridport, UK, and has a headache. He never wants to perform Gilbert & Sullivan again.

SAT 31 MARCH: 3.51AM

In this realization of Man Mountain Snore the snore part is realized by John Tilbury performing Morton Feldman’s For Bunita Marcus. Hosted by Eran Sachs and Alex DROOL, PRIMATE ARENA is a bi-weekly freeform happening for experimental & out muzak events (mostly in Tel Aviv), dedicated to Psych, EAI, Noise, Speech/Sonic/Concrete Poetry, Avant Rock, post millennial obscurities, pre millennial obscurities, the history of 20th century experimental music & other adventurous ventures.
Over the past three years they have created a platform - central to Tel Aviv's now vibrant, thriving scene - that has nurtured a community of adventurous local musicians including Maya Dunietz and Yoni Silver and hosted visiting internationals such as Blood Stereo, Jérôme Noetinger, Usurper, Arnaud Rivière, Ignatz Schick, Daniel Padden, Bob Ostertag and many others.

SAT 31 MARCH: 4.54AM


Le pont Mirabeau is a poem by Guillaume Apollinaire, published in his 1913 collection Alcools. In response to the theme and the structure of As Slow As Possible/Radio Boredcast, I chose to record myself reading Le pont Mirabeau at 8.30 in the morning for 31 days, anticipating and mirroring the duration of the broadcast in a different place and at a different time.

I chose this poem because of its slow flowing against its slowing into stillness – the flow of water, time and words in the stanzas against the circularity of time in the refrain. The adjective ‘slow’ appears still in the third stanza, the same one that contains ‘love’, ‘hope’, ‘violent’. The adjective ‘still’ appears slow in the refrain, as an impossibility. In the original French poem, ‘slow’ rhymes with ‘violent’ and ‘still I stay’ with ‘hours’.

The lack of punctuation throughout the poem calls not only for a flow of words, but also for different rhythms and meanings arising out of each reading. The readings always took place in my office, sometimes as dedicated recordings, sometimes while I was preparing to go out, sometimes while I was reading the paper or checking the news online. I learned the poem by heart, so sometimes the recordings mirror my small hesitations and gaps in recalling the verses. An old phonograph recording of Apollinaire reading the poem (from the Archives de Parole, Collection Phonothèque Nationale - Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris) supported some of the readings.

Daniela Cascella is a writer and curator based in London since 2009. Her research is focused on sound and on the way it seeps into other formats, most of all text. Her most recent projects explore and employ fictional tropes in writing criticism and descriptions of sound in fiction. She has recently finished writing her third book, En abÎme: a narrative across listening, reading and writing-as-landscape, as part of her research in the MFA Art Writing at Goldsmiths College that she completed in 2011.

SAT 31 MARCH: 5.00AM

Over a period of 5 days whilst in Borneo, I went out into the jungle before sunrise and set up a stereo recording system and left it running - something I never usually do. The results are really good and I have a collection of sunrise tracks in the Sukau rainforest of Sabah in Borneo over successive mornings with a range of bird and other animal sounds as well as the characteristic sounds of tropical rainforest; that is huge amounts of humidity and moisture slowly percolating down from the canopy 40m overhead.

Chris Watson is one of the world's leading recorders of wildlife and natural phenomena. In 1971 he was a founding member of the influential Sheffield-based experimental music group Cabaret Voltaire. His sound recording career began in 1981 when he joined Tyne Tees Television. Since then he has developed a particular and passionate interest in recording the wildlife sounds of animals, habitats and atmospheres from around the world. His television work includes Bill Oddie Back in the USA, Springwatch, Autumnwatch and The One Show.

SAT 31 MARCH: 7.41AM

The 'Just Sitting' practice has been part of the FWBO's system of meditation since the very beginning yet is not often discussed and not always understood. Here Subhuti gives his own inspiring and brilliantly refreshing take on the practice as a central element in his own meditative life. A must-listen piece for all those enthused by ideas of formal and 'formless' meditation.

SAT 31 MARCH: 8.20AM

Slowness is perceived and experienced as an accumulation of heaps of sound events layered upon each other like an ourobouros eating its own tail. Different ways of thinking about slowness are anchored by the cello and piano movement from Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time (louange a l'eternite de Jesus).  As this material, which transcends notions of measured time, plays itself out it collides and melts into other ideas about slowness from the voices of children (non-adult time), the song of the humpback whale (non-human time), pygmy song (non western time), the buzzing of dragonfly wings (insect time)... an hour of your time outside 21st century western time...

Zach Layton is a guitarist, composer, curator, improviser, teacher and video artist based in Brooklyn.  His work investigates unconscious and automatic musical impulses through the practice of free improvisation and indeterminacy. Using an EEG which can interpret and read brainwave signal in realtime, he is able to sonify and visualize this stream of unconscious data. His music involves a combination of digital and analog processes, field recordings and electric guitar played in non-standard tunings. Often controlled by brainwave impulses, these sounds interact with monochromatic computer generated video produced through complex deformations of basic geometric forms.

Zach has performed and exhibited at The Kitchen, Issue Project Room, PS1/MoMa, Anthology Film Archives, Performa, Sculpture Center, Transmediale, and many other spaces. He has collaborated with Luke Dubois, Vito Acconci, Elliott Sharp, the Joshua Light Show, Jonas Mekas, Tony Conrad, Bradley Eros, Alex Waterman, Nick Hallett, Andrew Lampert, Matthew Ostrowski, Michael Evans, MV Carbon, Ryan Sawyer, Peter Gordon, Tristan Perich and many other artists, filmmakers, curators, musicians and friends. Zach is also founder of Brooklyn’s monthly experimental music series, “Darmstadt: Classics of the Avant Garde” co-curated with Nick Hallett featuring leading local and international composers and improvisers, former co-curator of the PS1 warmup music series and curator at Issue Project Room.

SAT 31 MARCH: 9.23AM


SAT 31 MARCH: 9.43AM


A chartsweep of all 848 #1 hits on Billboard's easy listening charts in reverse chronological order from 2010 to 1961. A chartsweep is a cut-up of a large (and usually chronologically organized) library of pop songs. A history professor, Hugo Keesing, made today's definitive chartsweep using all #1 hits from 1950-1991, also available with a great interview on Ubuweb. But Keesing's own chartsweep was a "dusting off" of the late '60s radio show The History of Rock N Roll. Casey Kasem's American Top 40 show often used chartsweep montages. The technique is ubiquitous among late nite TV ads for comps with titles like "Super Soul Hits of the 70s". Another apparently anonymous example of audio chartsweep covering 1970-1972 takes a less structured, more musical approach. DJ Polymorphic turned chartsweep into a karaoke nightmare with his Song Of Songs. I expand chartsweep into a general form of fast-paced collage improvisation every week on WFMU. Adult Contemporary Redux was originally made available for WFMU's 2011 fundraising marathon and was composed in late 2010.

Hugo Keesing's undertaking was Herculean - he had to purchase all of the 45s for every song and edit them down on analog tape. With decent quality streaming audio available for all top-40 songs on Grooveshark and Youtube (there were only two songs on the entire charts that are not available for download on the internet) and efficient editing software, I was able to make the longest chartsweep ever in under 200 hours. All the same, the task of making chartsweeps is mundane and beneath human dignity. So after finishing Adult Contemporary Redux, I've been working on automating the compilation process with Pure Data and creating interactive visual scores of cut-up audio libraries. We are faced with a glut of aesthetic information everyday. Constantly experiencing a multitude of automatically produced chartsweeps could be a very powerful tool for life. My thanks go out to the people at Billboard, Nielsen and Arbitron for compiling airplay and sales data - you are the Ptolemys of the pop-stars and the Atlases of consumerism. (Nat Roe)

Finale -

The final podcast of Codpaste - a 96 minute mix of the best of the show, which when we play it back, we're quite amazed at how much we fitted into this series in such a short space of time.

"Codpaste" was a weekly podcast series in which the two artists People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz attempted to compose collage music from the very beginning, in a "work in progress" style, attempting to open up the creative process. The theory is that it is rare to see compositions made from the outset, and usually the audience are only invited in once the piece is finished, done and dusted. It could be that new light may be shed on the creation of art if the curtains are opened and the audience are given access to the raw, the imperfect and the wrong as well as the polished and the finished.

SAT 31 MARCH: 10.57PM

Written in 1985 for the University of Maryland International Piano Festival and Competition, ASLSP stands for “As SLow aS Possible”. The title also refers to the opening line in the final paragraph of Finnegan’s Wake, “Soft morning city. Lsp!”. The piece was commissioned by The Friends of the Maryland Summer Institute for the Creative and Performing Arts and dedicated to the memory of Madolyn Leonard.

Bearing in mind the utter tedium of competition judging, John Cage thought his open score would be as much a challenge for performers as it would be a change of pace for the judges. The piece consists of eight small movements, one of which is to be omitted, and one of which is to be repeated at the performer’s discretion, a format which insured the competition judges would never hear the same performance twice. John Cage’s revision of the work, Organ2: ASLSP, is currently being performed in Halberstadt, Germany over the course of 639 years. In the same epic tradition, Joseph Drew performed the original for nine hours at ARTSaha! 2006.
