UFOverdriver - Rule Number Two Is The New Rule Number One - The Wikileaks Big Cable Dump Mix

Wikileaks address: http://213.251.145.96/

UFOverdriver has been busy this last week working on this densely layered sound collage of mixed-media from the first week of the Wikileaks Cable Dump – a week that will be remembered as a historical battle in the history of the InfoWars…

This new remix includes music from U2, Talking Heads and Radiohead, lectures from Alan Watts and sound clips from an audiobook version of 1984, as well as numerous other clips, cuts, samples and various bits of audio debris from this first week of skirmishes in the new InfoWars…

Information About This Mix

First mixed on November 30, 2010 and released as a short pieces called Rule Number Two Will Be Told To You In Reverse, this remix was completed on December 6, 2010 and takes a broader look at this unfolding (or continuously leaking) situation.

While the first mix was only 3:48, this new re-mix is 14:20 and contains 6 individual tracks…

Music Pieces Used:

U2 – One Step Closer (from How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb)

Talking Heads – Life During Wartime (from Fear Of Music)

Radiohead – Videotape (from In Rainbows)

Radiohead – House of Cards (from In Rainbows)

Some of the material used in this sound collage (including the title) comes from an audio-cassette invitation to a party created by my friends Brian Maul, Kirk Jones (the voice saying “Rule number two will be told to you in reverse”) and Philip May back in the early 1990′s.

You can hear the complete invitation here (it’s about 30 minutes long and quite amazing…) http://onehumanbeing.com/central/2010/11/27/souvenirs-from-the-late-20th-century/

The drum loops came from the Acid Loops Universal Groove Elements, but I altered them somewhat… in the background are some strange loops from something I recorded in June of 1990, and there’s also some organ playing in there that I recorded last week for this collage.

“Hey Freethinker” – I took this sound clip from my friend’s audio-invitation, but it really comes from a group called Voice Farm

Here’s the latest podcast from UFOverdriver – a sound collage about Wikileak’s release of over 250,000 confidential and secret U.S. State Department diplomatic cables to major news organizations around the world…

In case you’re not familiar with this story about “Cablegate” from Wikileaks, here’s a bit of info:

WikiLeaks’ Cablegate, the latest dump of confidential documents by WikiLeaks, has the website prominently in the news again this week. (Scroll down for live updates.)

WikiLeaks released 250,000 secret State Department documents on Sunday, including cables related to Iran and its nuclear program, leading to numerous reactions.

HuffPost’s Sam Stein reports that the Obama administration is not ruling out taking legal action against WikiLeaks after the online site’s latest leak. In July, WikiLeaks released more than 90,000 Afghan war logs. Iraq war logs were released last month. WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange says the next dump will target a U.S. megabank.
