This three hour set was initially broadcast from Mathew Gallery (46 Canal St) and commissioned by Montez Press, and has now been condensed into a one hour radio show. Got 2 B Gainfully Employed looks at what it is to balance employment as an artist with a multitude of other things, taking from their own experiences observing application processes, the hypocrisy of supposedly ‘affordable’ alternative education programmes, the language of open-calls, and what it feels like to respond to this kind of advert. Alongside this the show will look at child-stars, thinking about how easy it is to match early success with a fruitful and sustained career. Got 2 B is a radio show which has been running since 2015, presented by Emily Pope and Ruth Angel Edwards. The artists make collaborative sound work utilising the banalities of daily conversation, creating narratives which cut between satirical and earnest in their observation. They collage soundbites from news bulletins and adverts, re-contextualising selected songs, to provide the listener with an interpretation of specific neoliberal landscapes. Got 2 B aired on Resonance FM from 2015 to 2017, and is currently broadcast monthly on COMET RADIO, London.
