Estamos midiendo el río

Radio Art Residency | Radio Corax | Goethe Institut

Estamos midiendo la orilla del río aquí |
نحن هنا لقياس ضفة النهر | 
We are just measuring the riverside here | 
Nous mesurons actuellement le rivage ici

The plurality of voices that inhabit a community radio station is reflected in this sound work. The complexity involved in communication in a multicultural media, when language is not an impediment to understanding. When the sounds are what really speak.

Five Radio Corax collaborators who speak different languages (German, French, Arabic) together with Sol Rezza (Spanish) made the walk recording their impressions of a specific place, a small path that runs along one of the city’s most important rivers (Saale).

From these linguistic sounds the German text that appears in the piece was created and each of the sounds and compositions were made.
