主讲人 Speaker

Brian Turner(美国 U.S.A.)

WFMU音乐总监 Music director of WFMU

 

Brian Turner将与我们分享关于独立电台WFMU迷人的一切:它独特的历史;它关于自由形式(相对于“特定类型”)节目的哲学;它是如何善用基于视觉/网络的方式来与艺术家及厂牌联动,从而构建这样一个社区型的电台;它的档案馆藏;它与地下音乐的羁绊;它是如何不依靠政府或商业资源而成功筹集资金……以及以上种种如何共同将它造就为一个为全世界听众所熟知的文化机构。

 

关于WFMU

WFMU是一个纯粹依靠听众筹资的自由形式电台,信号覆盖纽约和新泽西地区,并在网络上面向全球在线直播。它是全美知名度最高、最受尊敬也最为广受推崇的独立电台,放送的节目和音乐种类繁多,很多都甚至是在公共电台和校园广播中都未曾听到的内容。

WFMU极富冒险精神,从它突破性的节目内容与设置中就可见一斑。无论是在地下音乐圈还是大众音乐圈,它都是超前的,也因此在世界范围内都享有盛名。它曾连续四年被《滚石》杂志评为最佳电台;《纽约时报》有一篇专题以它为主题;它还拥有一部关于它的纪录片;《WIRE》杂志、John Peel、Matt Groening等业内的资深人士或媒体都对它有着极高的评价。

 

关于Brian Turner

Brian Turner自1996年起一直在WFMU担任音乐总监。每周一次的电台节目完美地记录了他不拘一格的音乐品味和关于声音的独特视野。他的节目模糊了实验和流行的边界,也拓展了广播电台的未曾被开发的可能性。被他邀入棚内采访的人中,不乏小野洋子(Yoko Ono)、 Iancu Dumitrescu和John Lydon这样的传奇人物;他也邀请了包括Wire、the Ex、Negative Approach、Lee Ranaldo、Skullflower和The Necks在内的许多音乐人和乐队在节目中进行现场表演。他同时还为电台策划了许多音乐节和音乐会,在他的“掌勺”之下,聚焦来自世界各地、不为大多数人所知,却绝对过耳难忘的声音。无怪乎Julian Cope会称他为“一个有着超前思维的混账”!


Brian Turner will discuss WFMU radio's unique independent history, philosophy about freeform (as opposed to genre-specific) programming, how that as well as visual/internet-based methods can be used as a tool to network with artists and labels and build up a community station, how WFMU fundraises independent of government or commercial sources, its archives, approach to underground music and how it all ties together to make it a well-known cultural institution amongst its listenership.

His eclectic tastes and sound vision are well-documented via his weekly radio show which blurs experimental/pop boundaries and takes radio to serious outer realms, and he’s hosted interviews in studio with everyone from legends like Yoko Ono, Iancu Dumitrescu and John Lydon, live performances with Wire, the Ex, Negative Approach, Lee Ranaldo, Skullflower, The Necks, and more.
