1. Without having the intention I had copied part of the set-up of the LeM-festival I had encountered in Barcelona in the year 2000: during a period of three months, concerts were given in different venues, thus giving me the possibility to explore different parts of Gracia.
2. Das kleine field recordings festival copies in a way the movements of the field recordist. He goes out to find new sounds, even if this voyage will take him to the other side of the globe. Visitors of this festival won't have to go that far, but they have to move to different neighbourhoods that all have their own special characteristics and their very own sounds.
2a. Each day the festival presents a different aspect, be it the individual approach, the finest moment( a short story in sound and word), the exchange of experiences and the possibility to listen to adventures in sonic wanderland, berlin soundscapes or sounds between nostalgia and the longing, with the intention to introduce field recordings and the recordists in a kaleidoscopical way.
3. The recordists are all part of a big network. This offers the possibility to have an on-line version of the festival as well. The computer will become a kind of bar. Instead of a coffee-to-go, you can find a festival-to-go. Each day of the festival there will be a different choice. At least this is what I hope, because I depend on the co-operation of recordists at the other side of this computer.
Once the mp3-s are on line, festival life becomes simple: Plug in, download, leave the bar (or not) and enjoy wherever you are, whatever you do.
