Re·use (r-yz) tr.v. re·used, re·us·ing, re·us·es. To use again, especially after salvaging or special treatment or processing. [TheFreeDictionary.com]

Truer words could not have been said for this the 31st release of the world wide web experimental music community, CT-Collective. The idea for ReUse began one day when I was awaiting the train, holding a plastic drink cup and subconsciously moving the straw about its cover making the familiar 'squeaky' sound. I had just recently participated in the CT-Collective project CT-Generative and wanted to lead a project. I thought why not do a recording of music produced entirely from things we often throw away and thus ReUse was born. Jim Goodin, Brooklyn, NY

recorded on Valentine's Day 2009

It's remarkable how much of our information still comes to us on dead trees... This piece examines ReUse, the reuse of sound and the sound of paper being prepared for reuse. All sounds are from recordings that would usually be erased - musicians from the band Lewis & Clark performing a sound check and an automated message that was accidentally captured on voicemail. Tearing paper is what you hear when you process newspapers for reuse as confetti or papier rmâché. These recordings were made on Valentine's Day 2009 an reused and assembled during the following week as I am starting to pull out of my winter slump. Although the days get longer they continue to pass. Time is never reused.

  Sweet sad and deep tune. Maybe summer will bring more happiness :-)
