GAJOOB Interviews Alan Herrick of Auricular Records


Interviews

Yes, I see you've got many videos, old and new, on your Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/herrickalan. In your mind, what is the point to a soundart performance? Where is the artist taking the audience? Is there necessarily a statement being made? Are these even the right questions?

You had many well-known noize and soundart/performance art artists doing shows at the Auricular store. Tell us about some of them. The Haters filling the store with hay, toilets?

What serves to make these kinds of performances successful? If I wanted to start such a thing in Salt Lake City, what would be your advice regarding the shows themselves?

GAJOOB Interviews Sooterkin Flesh


Interviews

You quote Mayuko Hino of the Cosmic Coincidence Control Centre that "...every painting, drawing, or performance is representative of a particular point in time and a particular emotion." Do you intend for your recordings to convey particular emotions or do you think the effect is essentially abstract?

This was well before email, social media, etc. How exactly do you build and foster an active community like this? What's the essential dynamic? Do you think it was different then than now?

Tapegerm operated under similar methods. Everyone uploaded loops to their own directory and had access to the loops in everyone else's directories. There was never any foul play in the FTP area, but plenty of spam and bots in the CMS website, which appears to be the case with Packet In as well.

Drew, I'd like to gather the Packet In audio stems and make them available as a longterm project on tapegerm.com. It's a free website for experimental music collaboration with a Creative Commons share-alike ethic. While I would link to this interview and probably LAU for more information, I wouldn't be able to host the entire Packet In website and wiki. I'm just interested in documenting the creative collaboration that happened in Packet In, while keeping the sounds alive for further exploration.

That's exactly what I was setting out to do with Tapegerm. I saw these homemade cassette albums people were sending me to review and thought, why don't we extract some sounds from them and set them free. Let everyone take them and make something new. That way you get a new thing, but the old sounds keep on speaking. I think it's a kind of dialog. Like a whispering of trees. Elevating your art is a good way of putting it, I think.

It should be interesting to see what continues to develop from these resources.

One last question: Do you think better music results from a F/OSS ethic?

Fascinating! I was listening to the 2008 album the other day and naturally gathered that there was a theme at play, at least in part, as you've confirmed. Thanks for the detail on how that all came together.

You said earlier in this thread that these pages are being taken down. I would like to house them as a more permanent, ongoing, project at tapegerm.com, if you don't mind. At least the 2008 project files. Tapegerm works are similarly Creative Commons-licensed and non-commercial. It is most often experimental and I imagine the sound sources will experience a wide range of processing. I just like the idea of sounds being something that live on. I would reference this interview and keep the directory structure intact. Final Packet In tracks I would like to archive on archive.org.

I was reading this thread http://linuxaudio.org/mailarchive/lau/2009/3/2/152989 on linuxaudio.org and was struck by how you said the resulting music of Packet In was tertiary to the Collaboration and to supporting Free and Open Source Software. Would you care to explain?
