radia #282 false beginner + radia #278 zeit(#2)
[pls. scroll down for english version]
neapel sehen und … neapel hören.
eine stadt, die in der erinnerung an ihre klänge zu vielen wird. die mit dir durchs leben reist, weil du versuchst, sie überall wiederzuentdecken.
kann das so falsch sein? neapel ist einzigartig. neapel ist überall.

see naples and… listen to naples.
a city in/as multiplicity. due to your memories, recalling its sound. a multiplied city travelling with you – you can find it wherever you want.
but isn't this all wrong? well, sure: naples is singular – and everywhere!
"As a thread that ties your own life up, an engine of memories and hidden emotions. The Italian language course as a game. Languages that run one after another, overlapping each other, recalling themselves in an attempted translation, just like Naples and Marsiglia soundscapes emerging from memoirs of Monique's, Therese's, Vivianne's childhood. All of them are pensioner over sixty, living in Marseilles, with Italian origins. Also meet Flore, Danielle and Eliane that present themselves in the street with their translated names Fiore, Daniela and Eliana. Immersion in a soup based on Italian, Neapolitan and French, where to find right gender concordance and how to get the right pronunciation. The Italian class is not a psychoanalytic session. Yet, speaking Italian gives form to a carnal relation with language, to the childhood memories of 'le Panier' known as the 'Petite Naples', and of 'la Cabucelle', two districts in Marseilles that are 'really like Italy'. A dream of Italy, warm, sunny and sublimated. […] 'False beginner' is a show based on binaural recordings in Naples's Quartieri spagnoli and in Panier and Cabucelle districts, recordings in different Italian classes, interviews and dialogues in public spaces."

“Radio ZEIT is a sound composition which aims to use the radio spectrum as a mechanism of time exploration. […] The composition has a soul linked to deeper interactive quotient variation in results depending on space and time of detection. […]
This sound piece aims to build a soundscape through a repeatable practice within various territorial circumstances. We tried to depict/record a fresco sound of Naples; what emerges is a sort of local 'agenda setting' of the medium, that reflect its multifaceted nature and comes out of a mix of both sports radio programs and neighborhood stations, both music of “neomelodici” and national mainstream.” [P.N./P.N.]
