The Whisper
Sri Lanka –wie man eine Gesellschaft spaltet

SWR2 Feature

Die Erzählstimmen gehören:
Malah Helman und Tom Pidde

Danke Euch beiden !!! Ich freue mich, Euch gefunden zu haben, Malah, Deine Stimme ‘im Netz’, und Tom, Deine Stimme, wie sie aus dem Lautsprecher des Nebenzimmers kam … (Blick hinter die Kulissen)

Im Frühjahr 2012 haben wir die Sprachaufnahmen zusammen gemacht, und es war für mich ein sehr schönes Erlebnis, mit Malah und Tom zu arbeiten und eine ganz große Freude. Ich hoffe wirklich, dass wir bald wieder zusammen arbeiten werden. Beim Hoffen soll es möglichst nicht bleiben. Was ich eigentlich sagen will, ist, ich arbeite dran.
Dies ist ja nun eine Stunde Radio, und das ist nicht wenig an Zeit und an Intensität, die ich mit den Stimmen verbringe, weil, ich schneide ja die O-Töne, die Erzählstimmen, und montiere alles, und so weiter. Und ich merke, wie sich durch die intensive Auseinandersetzung mit den Erzählstimmen etwas weiter entwickelt für mich, in meiner Arbeit. Genau weiß ich noch nicht, wo es hingeht, aber es könnte sein, dass ich das nächste Mal etwas schreibe für genau die Stimmen von Malah und Tom. Bei diesem Feature war es so, dass ich die Stimmen erst gefunden habe, als das Manuskript so gut wie fertig war.

Hier gehts zu Malah und hier zu Tom.

Viel Freude beim Radiohören, wo auch immer, am Radio oder via Livestream im Netz – HIER.

I’m tidying up my study. The window is wide open to let in the mild air, and I’m listening to my old radio pieces under wireless headphones.The Pensioner and the Rocker – Scenes of a friendship” is a 55 minutes-long radio feature which was first aired 2004 on NDR4.

I made the radio piece with the two friends Horst (80) and Uwe (40). I saw them in the U2 underground train in Hamburg one morning when I started to work in that city for a period of two months. We got on the train at the same time. Same time, same carriage, seats opposite. To be exact, it was the old man who got on the train the same time as me and who took the seat opposite me. Two stops later the young man came running and sat down beside the old man. I couldn’t take my eyes from them because of the way they were talking to another and treating each other, with great respect. I could hear everything they were saying.

Every morning I saw the old man on the platform. He always took the same carriage, I had noticed. Carriage number 8. So did I from then on. Carriage number 8. It was their meeting point. First the old man got on that carriage and took a seat right hand side. Two stops later the young man came running and sat down beside the old man. The young man was in a hurry every morning. I always took a seat left hand side in the carriage, and I watched them. And one day I plucked up the necessary courage and introduced myself to them. I mentioned that I make radio stories. And one of the next days I asked them whether they would allow me to make a radio story with them. They didn’t seem especially enthusiastic about the idea. But after a while the young man said: “Well, why not.” That’s how it started.

Horst has died. To not let the story with these lovely people disappear completely I made a short clip which I called “Day X”.

You can listen to it in my   NEXT BLOG-ENTRY.

Day X   Scenes of a Friendship  /  Radio feature  /  Short cuts by rb  /  03:36
Horst was over 80 when we started the recordings for the radio feature and he believed he won’t live to see the next Christmas. His friend Uwe is 40 years younger. Whether Uwe wanted to or not, and naturally he didn’t want to, he now had to grapple in real terms with the notion that Horst would soon cease to exist. – Horst and Uwe are the protagonists of my 55-min-radio feature “The Pensioner and the Rocker”, aired on German radio NDR 2004.
Horst has died.  Dear Horst! I put “Day X” here on my blog, in Remembrance of you. Well you know …

All are on their way between location A and location B. Between departure and arrival. All are moving. They are moving on streets or on railroad tracks or on the waterways and the airways. Their movements can be heard clearly or as vague fragments.
