a mix by Sanyi from the literary show Irodalmi lépegetö at Tilos Radio.Mainly English and French archival sound with some Hungarian and Welsh here and there – mixed with music.
Starting with Nina Simone’s French rendering of Ne me quittez pas on the musical front, and Eliot’s Family Reunion on the textual, it plunges into a verbal mix of radio-history, a trip to London – with both Big Ben songs being Hungarian jazz compositions from the sixties – however unlikely it may sound. With Fernand a Londres we switch into French, and fly on with their version of the Apollo 11 trip to arrive back on the Earth with the help of Nicole Louvier. We land in Barcelona, and take an oldschool automobile just to arrive in the office of gangbusters in chicago. And we say good bye with Ella scatting Good Enough to Keep – just to make sense of this jumble of communication forms. (And don’t worry, the only Hungarian you can hear is spoken by some German friends of mine)
Irodalmi Lépegetö is the Sunday afternoon literary show at Budapest’s Tilos Radio, usually using Hungarian texts with different styles of music corresponding to the atmosphere of the spoken word. Also organising live events with writers performing to musical and visual background.
