For Wednesday, January 18th, we revisit a conversation Latola recorded with George Langford and Tom Van Buskirk of Javelin at SXSW 2010.
Today I speak with artist Perry Bard about her participatory crowd-sourced film: Man With a Movie Camera, The Global Remake. The piece is exactly what the title suggests -- a re-imagining of Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov's 1929 experimental documentary: Man With a Movie Camera. Vertov conceived of his film as an attempt to use, what was then the relatively new medium of cinema, to communicate real life events without the help of intertitles, a story, or theater of any kind.
Kickin 2012 off right with new Thee Oh Sees, Mwahaha, Evacuee, Al Lover, and more.

We've all been on Google Earth and used it's satellite view or street view tools to get directions, find our way around a new city or just explore. My guest, artist Jenny Odell, has taken these tools a step further to use them as the subject of her work. Jenny scrolls around Google Satellite View collecting images of uniquely man-made structures -- like swimming pools, parking lots and landfills --- and arranges them on large prints, a way of re-examining the human-built landscape from the very inhuman perspective of a satellite's remote camera.
Today's show features some quality time with the Nicolas Jaar album, Space Is Only Noise, and an interview with BTR's Program Director Chris Hatzis who shares his first music memory
