UbuWeb Podcast: The Sounds of Fluxus A wealth of innovative sounds from this movement, which began in the early 50s and continues through today. From the broken record compositions of Milan Knížák to Yoko Ono's recording of a toilet flushing, Fluxus strove to break down the barrier between art and life, fusing Spike Jones, vaudeville, gag, children's games and Duchamp. Feautred here are Ben Vautier, John Cage, Emmett Williams, La Monte Young, Joe Jones, Dick Higgins, Larry Miller, John M. Bennett and Alison Knowles. You can find several Fluxus audio anthologies on UbuWeb as well: Fluxus 30th Anniversary Box, Fluxus Anthology, Fluxus Anthology 2006, Flux Tellus and Fluxsweet.

The Malady of Writing: Modernism You Can Dance To (MP3) In collaboration with MACBA in Barcelona, UbuWeb is pleased to present a podcast accompanying their new exhibition entitled The Malady of Writing, a project imagines a pleasurable, humorous and fun version of modernism. This podcast is based on Mark Klienberg's proposition: "Could there be someone capable of writing a science-fiction thriller based on the intention of presenting an alternative interpretation of modernist art that is readable and appreciated by the wider public?", which has actually been answered affirmatively in a certain undercurrent of artist's audio production over the past century; let's call it an unofficial unofficial history of modernism (doubly unofficial since artist's audio production has been viewed as secondary to the their plastic / marketable production). Artists featured include: Alfred Jarry and Charles Pourny, Erik Satie, George Antheil, Gertrude Stein, Salvador Dalí, Allen Ginsberg, Karl Holmqvist, Jack Smith, Karlheinz Stockhausen, The Beatles, The Mothers of Invention, The Beach Boys, Sue Tompkins, Flanagan & Allen, Gilbert & George, Kipper Kids, Laurie Anderson, Karen Finley, Chris Burden, Joseph Beuys, Martin Kippenberger, Miranda July, Seth Price, and Sean Landers.
