Cover The Basic Income Earth Network

Boredom is an emotional state experienced when an individual is left without anything in particular to do, and not interested in their surroundings. (Quote: Wikipedia)

The Basic Income Earth Network is a network of academics and activists interested in the idea of a universal basic income, i.e. a guaranteed minimum income based solely on citizenship and not on work requirement or charity. It serves as a link between individuals and groups committed to or interested in basic income, and fosters informed discussion on this topic throughout the world. (Quote: Wikipedia)

The music was recorded in a 4 hours lasting live improvisation in the collegiate radio-studio of Bauhaus.FM (Weimar, Germany).

Every hour had a headline. Every headline gave the words to the singer.

About The Author

headphonica is a confusing netlabel releasing free musical things. it is home to some unusual musicians, strange projects, and odd sound experiments and other. in terms of genres, headphonica is all over the board with electronica, tapemusic, jazz, avant garde, folk, experimental, noise, hip hop, and pop, among others. headphonica started in 2006 as a project with a rather academic approach to lofi-sounds, wich ought to be recorded via headphones. after publishing this compilation called headphonica, the project started to grow further, developing as a netlabel.the explorative alignment can still be heard in the largest share of the netlabels releases, but the label also had intense relationship to pop music since the early days. this seeming dichotomy resolves in the perspective of the artists: it’s about acclaiming the already developed on the one hand and yearning for musical freedom on the other.
