Concept ( january revisited edit)

Das kleine field recordings festival will be on different places in town. These places offer all their own audiotope to the visitor, turned into a listener. Field recorders work with different views (and different gear, uhhuh). Our acoustic surroundings are very generous; each one can find his own story in it. Each one will hear something different. The completed works have titles that serve to the listener as a portal, or a guide for his sonic adventure.

I have made up five themes. There are more to be thought of: The Elements! Riots! The Secret Life of Plants! Jumbo gets married! But alas, maybe I was more prosaic: and thought of imaginary homecomings, storytelling, travelogues, archived sounds and Berlin soundscapes (we are in Berlin), recordings for the soundscape day will be made by the visiting artists during their stay or were already made by the Berlin based artists.

This chapterisation of the festival can be copied everywhere, with the one exception to change the name of the town on the soundscape day.

New to the festival is the exhibition Found Tapes, Found Sounds, Found Recorders.
I will write about that in an other entry.
