Living Live: I Love Vinyl

Clocktower Radio's Jeannie Hopper hosts the I Love Vinyl crew at Red Bull Studios New York as we continue the summer long Living Live streamcast and viewing party. The group shares from their vast musical collection and discusses new media radio innovation. Join us onsite or online Wednesday, July 23 from 6-9pm and enjoy the radio adventure as part of Peter Coffin's Living exhibition now on view at the gallery.

I Love Vinyl was founded in the summer of 2009 by six seasoned DJs hailing from NYC, Chicago, Baltimore, and beyond. With over 100 years of spinning, and over 100,000 records between them, the I Love Vinyl all-stars include DJ Scribe, Amir Abdullah, Jon Oliver, OP!, and Shawn Dub.

The very organic history of this vinyl loving crew revolves around their fabulous grassroots party and their innovations in radio using Mixcloud in a terrestrial-influenced, free-form style. For their shows, which have spread to Brooklyn and Amsterdam, they invite selectors from seasoned DJ's, crate diggers, musicians, and artists who share a passion for vinyl. They are champions of vinyl in the digital age.

Living Live: The Art of the Soundtrack

Devon E Levins of Morricone Youth (East Village Radio) and Fabio Roberti, host of Strength Through Failure (WFMU) are film score experts and radio veterans with encyclopedic knowledge and terrific collections. They discuss historic trends in the field, handpick winners and losers and assess the current scene. The conversation is followed by an eclectic music selection tilting toward the more obscure work and including the greats: Morricone, John Barry, Mancini, Nino Rota, Bernard Herrmann and much more.

Living Live: The Free Music Archive & WFMU

Clocktower Radio interviews the creators of the Free Music Archive to discuss law, innovation, open-source activism, networking, music, and communications. With Ken Freedman - WFMU Station Manager and self-described DJ, Red Sea Pedestrian, Self-Hating Atheist, Skier, Proud New Jerseyan and bubbling cauldron of rage and Jason Sigal - founding director of the Free Music Archive, an expert in alternative copyrights and digital distribution, a WFMU DJ and a member of the band Lame Drivers. Freedman pioneered the use of direct licensing for broadcasters, obtaining alternative copyrights and waivers to address restrictions placed on broadcasters by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. In 2007, Freedman and Sigal built on these direct licensing activities and founded WFMU's Free Music Archive, an open source library of copyright-cleared music and audio which launched in April 2009. The interview will be followed by a playlist assembled from the FMA comprised largely of indie bands and experimental music.
