The festival started with a provocation, and was received as such. I wanted to present an anti-thesis to the purist approach of the first two editions. Then the musicians mostly came with their laptops and presented a composition of their nature, domestic or site recordings.

When, long ago, musicians left their studio's to make their recordings somewhere else, they adopted the name field recordings. (Of course lots of scholars will see this differently.) This movement brought to me the suggestion that there was a want for imperfection, and also a desire to capture something of the daily life itself.

Last nights concert was in open air, in a garden that was part of a bigger patchwork, that consisted further of a small sportsfield, backyards, but above all five stories of bare walls with windows in it. Loads of people living there must have heard the sounds coming from our loudspeakers (we were not loud).

In the garden itself sounds from the streets were heard, some music from a open window, people talking in an other part of the garden. Each perfoming artist created a momentary sonic portrait of the evening.

I knew that little use of field recordings was to be made. The total line-up was a composition, the participants themselves and the order in which they played. The real field recording was made by each single member of the audience.
It is in their memory that the imperfectness of the evening will come to its completion.

greetings from berlin,
