Monday, 16th December, 7pm, SWR2 Tandem:
THE NIGHT PORTER AT THE HOTEL TAHITI – my new radio piece.

A late check-in? No problem, the reception will be manned round the clock. That is good to know.
And the young night porter, what is he doing all night?
Enjoy this audio piece featuring the man at the front desk, staying awake, waiting and listening to the sounds of the night – from his very special perspective.

Headphones would be perfect.

This way, please, to the SWR2 Tandem livestream.

Sincere thanks to the night porter and to all involved.

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.

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 …

A good Day for Departure    A sound collage with field recordings by rb  /  02:51  /  aired on German radio SWR2 Dschungel, Machete 2008
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.
