SFC Conference 2011

I will be speaking on a panel about “Remix culture, music, and the arts” this weekend at the 2011 Students for Free Culture Conference here in NYC.

Also on the panel will be Ben Sisto, Laurel Halo, DJ Ghostdad, and Games (the musicians), all moderated by Aram Sinnreich. A cool mix of musicians and artists, and definitely internet power users one and all. Full program for the weekend here.

I’m pretty psyched for this because my artwork, money work, and volunteer work are spread across a lot of different outlets, too many blogs/twitters/facebooks/DJ nights to draw a though-line, basically. But then Kevin Driscoll wrote to me and said that “My goal is to bring together folks who work across boundaries and can talk comparatively about multiple modes of making: cutting up videos, DJing, writing code, etc.” So for the first time I feel really qualified!

I’ll try to speak about my history with GRL and FAT, web appropriation on Double Happiness and in my own work, and music efforts of WFMU and the Free Music Archive. So much panel, so little time! 😀
