In this episode: 
We talk with experimental musician C. Reider.

Here are Doug's notes from the interview.

Give us an overview of your work
He thanks us!

He writes a lot, but doesn’t verbalize a lot.

remixing is important to C.Reider!

genres are misused

C.Reider says that experimental music is for anyone that is willing to open their mind a bit.

Back to the “introduction”

C.Reider is a listener and all of his art comes from that.

WTF? why don’t people listen to other artists?

composer and netlabeler

not always interested in western rhythms.

Ukulele is not necessarily experimental!

What are the results of the experiment?
experimental for both the listeners and the artist.

Failure is a distinct possibility

C.Reider is comfortable with failure, but doesn’t release

Releasing in a limited edition.

What about music as an escape?

Here is in on

Is there a difference between music and sound art?
C.Reider does music! but sound art is a thing!

sonic arts is an umbrella term!

Curated one sound art show

Tom talks about mixed medium arts. “What do you paint like?”

Sound art is the future of music.”

“We’re in an interesting time in the evolution of music.”

What drew you to Creative Commons?
Long-involved story

manager of 3 netlabels:

vuzh like Rouge

the “main” one for now ← very cool concept of reusing samples from previous releases

noise versus way communication, but ← brand new, only two releases

a couple more are ready to go

scream artists:

Of course, John Zorn comes up.

C.Reider brings up Jaap Blonc.

mail art!

expose yourself! ← that’s the gist

copyright abuse!

cassette underground changed when CD-Rs were invented.

and then...the Internet!

communication and exchange!

vuhz started out as free because he didn’t know how to sell!

Why do you use the the license you use?
Uses different licenses. Default is CC BY-NC-SA.

Business is not fun!

What about DJs that get paid?
-NC basically means that there’s control

Do you know Gurdonark (aka Robert) from mail art or from music?
They know each other from the netlabel community

Is it pretty isolated in Northern Colorado? How does that affect your music?

not super-social

What is the Creative Commons culture like in Colorado?
Not to the entire scene, but there is another netlabel out of a place 20 minutes away (Fort Collins, where Colorado St. is)

Taking classes and there’s academic use of CC/PD texts

What are the live shows like?
no installations, but perhaps in the future

only recently started doing performances...but involved in music for over 20 years!

doing more improv stuff!

solo performances only so far, but perhaps collaboration in the future

What are some of your favorite bands/artists/genres, CC or otherwise?
75% or more ccmusic/netlabel stuff. Pretty huge majority.

goes through phases of other stuff:

Krautrock, progressive, heavy metal, industrial

Abdul “Makanu”

Cloud City Cars

“The Fleets Lit Up”



@c ← that’s the band name

“Five Structures in a Cold Void’

Who are some people you think we should try to get on the show (aka, who are the important people in Creative Commons music today)?
Marc Wheat ←

written for boingboing

David Nemeth ← netlabel enthusiast

Richard Sanderson ← linear obsessional

Dave aka Mystery Bear

John Semasco

Sam Landry ← leberger

Andrew Weathers

Sonic Squirrel

Is there anything else you would like to say/tell us about?
Experimental music is a huge field!

Get away from it all and listen to the sounds of the world!

this can be transformational
