[Repeated from Friday 2.30pm.] A programme of multiple agendas presented by William English. This week: This Is You proposes a metaphysical feedback loop involving the lens, a broadcast system, biological ocular-centrism and the sun. Using the birth of user-generated content as the starting point, the work traces the 25-year history of the TV programme Funniest Home Videos in an attempt to describe the prism of existence as solar vanity. This Is You meditates on the desires of the self, bathed in light and rawly exposed without any more intent than being itself.’ Australian composer Chris Cobilis set about transcribing episodes of both Australia’s and America’s Funniest Home Videos to develop an animated graphic score and accompanying script which conceptually speaks of the feedback loop This Is You proposes. The work was performed live in studio by Chicago’s Spektral Quartet and American poet Kenneth Goldsmith at Electrical Audio with engineer Steve Albini. Plus Spanish for slow learners; poetry by Jean Luc Parant; and prose by Gerard Rudolf from Orphaned Lullabyes. First broadcast 16 January 2017.
