JETZT oder wahrscheinlich ist dies mein Alltag, in der Verwirrung der Orte und der Augenblicke (1982) – Luc Ferrari

Luc Ferrari

This two hour radio play was recorded at the Hessischer Rundfunk in Frankfurt an edited in Ferrari’s Paris studio. Challenging the idea of what a radio play can be, the piece combines field recordings, music, and dialogue to create what Ferrari intended to be a series of labyrinth-like atmospheres that form a sonic tapestry. Listeners drift from one sound atmosphere to another, hearing places and times overlap each other and combine into unique events. An intentionally confusing path through time and space, the piece montages the sounds of the Vivan Quartet de Narbonne performing and speaking along with field recordings of various Mediterranean soundscapes and other recorded dialogues from the making of the piece, following an obscure plot while also speaking to the process of creation itself.
