ELEVENELEVEN :: 36 SUPERCOMPOSER

Dick Whyte (a.k.a. Supercomposer)Dick Whyte (a.k.a. Supercomposer) is a conceptual artist, film-maker, musician and academic from New Zealand. This mix explores the relationship between noise, conceptual music, the legal ramifications of copyright and remix culture, drawing on Whyte’s personal collection of  unreleased artists, bloggers and bootlegs to create a cut-up soundscape of radio plunderphonics. Each track differs aesthetically, however a dedication to breaching copyright joins these musicians ethically at a point in time when our freedom as artists to critically engage with commercial ‘found’ sound is being threatened. Enjoy!
