Mardi 5/2 à 12h00 : "Codpaste" was a weekly podcast series in which the two artists People Like Us & 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. These weekly programmes were expanded into a digital-only album entitled “Rhapsody in Glue”.
Background on the collaboration : Since 2002 People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz have collaborated on a number of compositional projects ; including a radio show, two albums and two live performances ; "Boots !" and "Screen Play". "Screen Play" was a live soundtrack for Christian Marclay’s film of the same name, performed as part of the Wire 25 celebrations in London in November 2007. "Boots !", a year-long project (2006-2007), was presented online as a free downloadable 5-hour long archive (at UbuWeb), including compositional elements dissected into component parts, demonstrating creative processes that led to finished works, making it remixable by downloader. The project received radio play on BBC Radio, Channel 4 Radio - plus 450 subscribers to our subsequent 10" record - "Honeysuckle Boulevard", and an additional 200 who were too late to participate.
