Pepite 18 - Listening to UbuWeb

Season One


This week Pepite goes historical and switches on the light on an open archive that collects some of the most important sound-art works of the Twentieth century. We are not exagerating, it's UbuWeb.

UbuWeb is a large web-based educational resource for avant-garde material available on the internet, founded in 1996 by poet Kenneth Goldsmith. A completely independent research and knowledge tool that - here at Radio Papesse - we love very much, and that's why we pay our homage with a selection from Ubu's "summer archive".

Fun with sound by Wes Harrison

Wes discovered at a young age that he had a talent for making sound effects with his mouth. Any other child with this ability might have put it aside and grown up to become a teacher or an accountant or a biologist. But Mr. Sound Effects grew up and found employment making sound effects with his mouth!
