Show 450: The Death of the Authors (Radio Panik)

The Death of the Authors, James Joyce & Virginia Woolf & Their Return to Life in Four Seasons.

Every year on New Year’s Day, due to the expiration of copyright protection terms on works produced by authors who died seven decades earlier, thousands of works enter the public domain – that is, their content is no longer owned or controlled by anyone, but it rather becomes a common treasure, available for anyone to freely use for any purpose.

This is a radio reading of a few pages of The Death of the Authors, James Joyce & Virginia Woolf & Their Return to Life in Four Seasons (a Constant remix). The Death of the Authors is a generative novel made with Python and nltk, based on texts by Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Rabindranath Tagore, Elizabeth Von Arnim, Sherwood Anderson and Henri Bergson, some of the authors we welcomed on 1-1-12.

The selection of the texts used for this publication is very much influenced by the availability of works online. Famous authors are easy to find, English works and translations are often available as free e-books, thanks to an initiative such as The Gutenberg Project.

This publication was the first in a series. By creating a new work every year on Public Domain Day, Constant wants to give an incentive in making public works electronically available and rediscovering them.

Show 449: Rosarats Barrel by Dr Klangendum (Radio WORM)

Rosarats Barrel   27.57″

by Dr klangendum  for Worm/Radia

special guest; Xentos ‘Fray’ Bentos

In 1929 Jaromir Vejvoda wrote the ‘Modranska Polka’, named after Modrany, s suburb of Prague where it was played the first time. Since then the song has been played all over the world by people from all countries & languages. The english might know it under the name of ‘Beer Barrel polka’, the german version goes by the name of ‘Rosamunde’. Allthough the melody is always the same -and even the versions don’t differ so much- the lyrics go in all directions. The czech version was a very depressed one about a wasted love (skoda lasky etc.) while the anglosaxons only want to make fun and drink (see the beer barrels). In the meantime, the germans want to get under the skirts of a girl named Rosamunde while the dutch think the song is actually about soldier’s food (rats kuch en bonen).

The reason Dr Klangendum made this piece about a piece is that the song hasn’t left his brain since he was three and heard it for the first time at the wedding of his uncle and aunt. Sometimes he wakes up in the middle of the night, humming the chorus. Sometimes he runs the marathon for kilometers and kilometers in the tempo of the first part of the song (there’s a garden, what a garden).  Sometimes he wants to jump of a cliff, just to get rid of it. Making the piece was the next best thing to do. He hopes you enjoy it and will be contaminated.
