Sound Transmission and Listening : Challenges of the Present

Talk at shift.fm festival, Weimar, Bauhaus University. You will hear me from 2050 talking about today and my thoughts about Listening’s Urgency. It is me from the future.

In a time of pandemic when radio radio shows and podcasts became again an essential factor and carrier of cultural and political content, having as an initial motive the shift.fm week here on Bauhaus-Universität, Weimar, we would like to open the discussion around sound transmission, radio and the changes of the listening situation. The future and the always changing present are creating new possibilities and challenges that we would like to approach using as an input the work of Hardi Kurda, usmaradio, bauhaus.fm and the past of sound art and radio in connection with political movements. Anna Bromley, Roberto Paci Dalo, Eleftherios Krysalis, Hardi Kurda, prof. Nathalie Singer and prof. Christiane Voss are discussing together on the air of bauhaus.fm and shift.fm. Broadcasted also on radio in between spaces and usmaradio. Special thanks too Santarcangelo Festival.
