doch zunächst einmal lauschen wir den radioträumereien aus irland. um uns im anschluss mit den nachwirkungen oraler einname von äther zu befassen.
dies ist der zweite teil des radiator x specials mit sommernachtsträumen.

and further we dream. of the passing summer. sending another broadcast with radiophonic day and night reveries into the ether. that is probably already in us? one way or the other. who knows.
however, first we'll listen to radio dreams from ireland, collected by anna keleher and claire coté:
"One year ago contemporary artists Anna Keleher (Devon, England) and Claire Coté (New Mexico, USA) were busy DREAMING PLACE at Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark in Éire and Northern Ireland. Now, an international audience can share their sonic adventures via a series of radio broadcasts woven from their experience. Based on an ancient Celtic tradition that the land remembers everything, Radio Dreaming explores how the land speaks through dreamers.
DREAMING PLACE is about deepening and illuminating our relationship with Place and we are excited to be sharing our project with audiences around the globe. Radio is an exciting medium that enables artists to reach people in their own homes or cars, in cities, small towns or very rural settings, says Claire Coté.
In this first Radio Dreaming episode, listeners are invited to join Anna and Claire wild camping, eating, drawing, walking and kayaking their way through the Geopark to meet its people, places, creatures and things. Episode 1 features stories, conversations and soundscapes of dreams, food, and edible geopark landscapes.
Our broadcast gives protagonism to the diverse voices of these Geopark homelands. We really hope that Radio Dreaming will inspire others to listen and share stories in their own homeplaces, says Anna Keleher. Anna began her successful international collaborative partnership with Claire in 2007 at Dartington College of Art on the innovative MA Arts and Ecology. Together they continue to make audio journeys, radio broadcasts, drawings, sculptural installations and performative events, transcending the miles through internet technologies. The only thing they can’t share is a pot of tea." [A.K./C.C./L.G.]
afterwards katrin essenson and raul keller from the estonian art radio project LOKAALRADIO are drinking with us on the throughoutly emotional after-effekts of drinking ether:
"'The audible after-effects of drinking ether' is a radioshow that finds the hosts somewhere between lucid dreaming and automatic speech, exploring the interesting phenomena of drinking ether, somewhere in the southern parts of Estonia." [K.E./R.K.]
this is the second part of our radiator x special with summer night dreams.
