Russell Tovey and Robert Diament
Ronan McKenzie and Joy Yamusangie (Recorded at HOME by RM)
Russell & Robert meet artists Ronan McKenzie and Joy Yamusangie at new multifunctional creative space HOME, on Hornsey Road, North London. We explore their current joint-exhibition 'WATA, Further Explorations'. Taking root in Mckenzie and Yamusangie’s first formal collaboration, a short film of the same name (produced at the beginning of 2020), 'WATA' weaves together considerations of ancestry, cross cultural connections, music and migration. To watch 'WATA' online during lockdown, and to learn more about this extraordinary new centre for art, please visit: https://www.homebyrm.space/ Ronan Mckenzie is a London-based photographer, curator, and the publisher of HARD EARS. Her photography focuses on themes that unearth hidden beauty and cultural imagery. Visit Ronan at: https://www.ronanmckenzie.co.uk/ J Yamusangie is a mixed media artist working across illustration, printmaking, typography, poetry, ceramics, collage and painting, all with a central theme of autobiography. Visit Joy at: https://joyyamusangie.com/ Born out of the necessity to be seen and heard, HOME presents a considered curation of exhibitions from leading and exciting artists. Their lounge and co-workspace stimulate through a library of literature and arts, setting the scene for our events programme which aims always to connect and inspire. Being a modern hybrid of an art gallery and a community events space, at the heart of HOME is the aim to inspire, share and support. HOME takes ownership over cultivating our community and creating space for us to be, with a library and creative work space to be shared and enjoyed. HOME is one of very few black owned art spaces within London, and one of the only to be artist led, with a leading focus on supporting Black and Indigenous People of Colour. HOME responds directly to the personal and communal need for a more honest and representative space, that cares deeply for the artists we present and the community of people that we welcome in to our space. HOME offers a considered curatorial and events programme which highlights our founding concept; to truly contextualise artists, and continually transform to support the community we are built for.

Unfortunate Sonic Coincidences: The Lawsuits
Okay…let’s go over this one more time…there are just twelve notes in the western scale…the ways they can be combined to form pleasing sounds are finite in number…it’s a big number, but it’s still finite… If we look at chords—which are combinations of three or more single notes played simultaneously—the number is smaller still…and there are only so many ways in which chords may be played in a sequence that makes any sense to the ear and the soul… For example, there are dozens and dozens of hit songs with the same four chords at their root…e, b, c#, and a, played in that order… If I haven’t lost you to music theory yet, all these songs are constructed on those chords… “With or Without You” from U2, Green Day’s “When I Come Around” and “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” from the Smashing Pumpkins, and The Offspring’s “Self-Esteem”…plus “Don’t Stop Believin'’” by Journey, “Barbie Girl” by Aqua, and John Denver, “Take Me Home Country Roads”… In fact, there’s a whole Wikipedia page dedicated to what’s know as the “i-v-vi-iv progression”…it can be played in different keys (for example, “bullet with butterfly wings” is in b-flat while “self-esteem” is in c-major) and the chords can be ordered differently, but the common dna is there…this is just how our scale works and how songs are constructed… Now listen to me: this is not a sign that any of these artists lack in creativity… no one is breaking any rules…and no one is ripping off anyone because no one can have exclusive ownership over a chord progression… However, there is a subset of people—lawyers, mostly—who believe that they should be able to sue artists for plagiarism if there’s any perceived similarity between two songs…the original composer needs to be compensated for this alleged theft…even the threat of a lawsuit and jury trial might be enough to scare up some settlement money… This is insane…and the situation has been getting worse and worse…I think it’s time we deconstructed what’s happening with these crazy lawsuits that threaten to cripple all of music… See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
