Wilderness Journey for Schneeradio byPeter Pessl
Sound Design: Martin Leitner

(in 5.1 Surround Sound)

Projektpage (german only)


The material for this wilderness journey for Schneeradio consists of a handful of recordings in the wilderness, including Peter Pessl's flying bees, which he made on the very last days of late autumn; also to be heard are midwinter pre- and post-linguistic vocal improvisations at the springs of Strem in southern Burgenland (Austria), as well as reused, world-transformed material from quite different, seemingly distant contexts, which Pessl likes to call "contaminated material" (from contaminare: "to touch, to merge").

As in his poems and his prose works, the artist uses the method of "blurred collage" for this wilderness piece. Peter Pessl defines this method like this: " ... to hit the target in the snowy distance, "da, Wind auf den Grashügeln!", I take a long way out into the opposite of what is meant, "da, Hase im Haselgraben!"
