presents the third part of a radio art series that takes a contemporary
approach to the twelve books of John Milton’s “Paradise
Lost”, a classic of English literature. In twelve instalments
corresponding with the books, the artists follow the example of John
Milton and create audio pieces based on what they hear. “The
basic material for the individual episodes are sounds of everyday life,
conversations and interviews – with other people and with
themselves, with passers-by on the street, in galleries, at
universities, in shopping centres, but also with strangers over a cup
of coffee”, says Marold Langer-Philippsen, who uses the classic
piece of writing as an inspiration for the PARADISELOST series. What
paradises do or did we have? Have we lost them? Was there one paradise
or were there even more? What did and do they sound like?
