Show 101: R(H)umeur collective, part 1

R(H)umeur collective is a radio piece initiated by Maki for Radia. The original idea of this programme is a “versus” to Sarah Washington’s Time Labs project: she built a radio show with numerous one-minute audio pieces she received after launching an open call via the Internet.

R(H)umeur collective started with a similar call for participations through the Radia network and more widely. The main difference with Time Labs is that Maki included each contribution in its entirety without any other transformation than mixing them all together. It resulted in 2 radio pieces.

This programme is the first part of R(H)umeur collective. The second one will be broadcast in the Radia network and replayed live from the sound-art festival Laps in Main d’oeuvres, Paris, in May 2007.
