Musical Collage of Popular Music

by People Like Us

Vicki Bennett creates quirky and skillful musical collages out of disparate sources but usually there are many recognizable elements from popular music. Creating under the name People Like Us, she’s a key figure in the copyfight and has also been involved with creating the Creative Commons licenses related to sampling. While many of her wonderful audio creations are available online, I jumped at the chance to pay for her latest CD, which is called “All Together Now”. Only available on CD, it’s a neat collection of some beautifully-constructed sonic gems. There is something special about having a physical artifact with digital information shipped across the ocean.
