Datscha-Radio takes the garden in all its diversity as its foundation and taps its full potentials: straight on site, out of nature and plants, from the knowledge of the gardeners and from the inexhaustible richness of the worlds linked to the garden. The combination of “garden” and radio technology touches the very boundaries between the real and the imaginary, between the material and the visionary worlds. Datscha Radio is an art and culture project and is subsidized by the faculty for art and culture of the district council Pankow, Berlin.
I contributed to some field recordings of urban rooftop beehives gathered in Brussels. You can read more about the project, which ran from 24-31 August 2012, and listen to an archive of recordings by visiting the project website here.
