The Dirty Dozen
This is the first Radia contribution out of Luxembourg. A dozen people got together to discover new ways of recording and radio making, thrilled by the infinite possibilities of radio art and wildly making use of any recording device they found.
Intentionally focusing on sounds, noises and voices that usually just form the background of recordings – or are not recorded at all. Distracting reverbs, deformed languages, distortions and alien sound worlds have been surrounding us and have now been captured for Radia. Plunge into these soundscapes and enjoy the variety of discoveries we have made.
Special thanks go to Mobile Radio for holding a two-day introduction workshop, of which this show is the result, organised by CNA (Centre national de l’audiovisuel) and Radio ARA, the free radio in Luxembourg.
Produced by Wendy Winn, Ben Dratwicki, Jamie Reinert, Claire Thill, Sandra Laborier, Lars Schmitz, Véronique Faber, Justin Jacquot, Guy Anthony, Monique Hoffmann, Luca Piparo and Isabel Scott with support from Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann. Made with additional recordings by CNA audio archive and SoundBible.com (Daniel Simon).
