NR.3: DESO RADIOMUSEUM – EUROPRIDE

TOUR THROUGH THE ROOMS OF THE DESO RADIOMUSEUM FOLLOWED BY AN AUDIO–WALK (RADIOMUSEUM–EUROPRIDE) WITH THE RADIO PLAY «SPEICHER» BY MICHAELA MELIÀN AND AN INTRODUCTION BY KASPAR SURBER

Meeting point: Saturday, June 6, 2009, 11:00, DESO Radiomuseum, Seestrasse 561, Wollishofen
Limited number of participants (Advance registration is required): lexicon@offpride.ch

The audio walk's starting point is the Deso Radiomuseum in Wollishofen, initiated in 2001 in the former rooms of the radio fabrication. The radiomuseum shows the history of radio based on the radio receivers produced by the Dewald company, the origins and developement of electronics and the effect the medium radio had on the social life of its users. With the radio play «Speicher» by Michaela MeliÓn in the ear we walk along the lake, towards the venue of the europride parade. «Mit dem Stadtplan von London den Harz durchwandern» out of «Speicher» – with MeliÓn as map back to the pride. The artist, author of radio plays and musician retrieves the sounds, noises and tones out of the 1965 produced work «Varia–Vision; Unendliche Fahrt» by Alexander Kluge, Edgar Reitz and Josef Anton Riedl, which, during a long time was believed to be lost and she reflects both the format audio and the medium radio. With a clear musical and poetical structure meliÓn discusses the topics of travelling, roaming, being a stranger and the longing for the unfamiliar, in the shape of a multilayered composition.
