travels to china. and in china. voices. sounds. narratives. music. stories and histories. from the present as well as from (im)possible pasts.
in the first part of the show we are listening to childhood stories from china, collected for us by butterland:
"Childhood Stories is an art project with sociological approach: it composes narrations of individuals about their childhood in order to create an authentic image of the social environment they grew up in. Therefore we gather material about childhood in a specific country by using a questionnaire. The answers are anonymized, translated and used as literary material, they are condensed or cut up, then arranged in a dramatic text – that's Regina's part. Christian composes the music using field recordings from the respective country. The result is an artistic documentary in form of an audio drama.
Childhood Stories China 2012 gives insight in the 1980s and 1990s in China's urban middle class."
field recordings / montage / realisation: Christian Müller – translations / script / female voice: Regina Dürig – male voice: Miro Caltagirone.
"from china" is a special version of Butterland's "Childhood Stories" produced as a radiator x' contribution for radia art radio network and has been broadcasted as radia #491 (season 30) by all radia partner stations. for more detailed info about the show pls. see also the related entry* in the GUNSTprojects archive.
