(Translation will follow) Datscha Radio bedankt sich ganz herzlich bei allen KünstlerInnen, die sich so vielfältig am Open Call beteiligt haben! Aufgrund der Menge und Länge der Beiträge haben wir uns entschlossen, neben den Loops für den Klanggarten, noch ein Nachtspecial zu kreieren, dass vor allem die längeren Stücke präsentiert. Der KLanggarten selbst spielt auf den DEFA-Märchenfilm “Das Singende Klingende Bäumchen” an.

Selbstverständlich werden viele Stücke (bis zu einer Länge von) ca. 6 min auch während unserer Liveshow vorgestellt. Wann und welches genau können wir zu diesem Punkt der Programmreife aber nicht sagen.

How Do We Love This World, if mushrooms could talk and trees could [Wenn Pilze sprechen und Bäume sich umarmen könnten, wie liebten wir diese Welt]
Laura Lukisch

TRT 16:31
Inmitten extremer Wetterereignisse ist es schwierig, Liebe und Verlust, Hoffnung und Verzweiflung zz vereinen, wenn wir Zeuge von Bränden, Regenfällen, Überschwemmungen, Erdbeben und anderen Naturkatastrophen werden, die die Welt, wie wir sie kennen, verändern. In diesem Audiobeitrag verwebt die Künstlerin Laura J. Lukitsch Überlegungen der Gärtnerin und Gründerin des Occulto Magazine, Alice Cannava, der Autorin und Psychologin Anette Pollner, der Künstlerin und Autorin Eva Fiore Kovacovsky und der Somatikerin und Lehrerin Olive Bieringa.

Our program on October 1 combines radio and apple lore, hospitality and long distance, FM broadcasting and sound garden into a 4-hour event under the trees of the meadow orchard in Altenburg. Freshly shaken and finely shaken we have also our new announcement!

Datscha Radio can be heard internationally in the player on this website, locally on FM 90.6 around the meadow, and additionally on cashmereradio.com.

We are looking forward to our radio guests, to the upcoming conversations and are ourselves excited about the course of our day, because as always, the program will be fluid and in harmony with our guests and the submissions to our Open Call. We hope for many delicious jams, which we would like to taste live on the radio from 16:30.

Autumn comes in green and red and golden, rich in scents and tastes, a time for the gathering and sharing of fruits and experiences. With Streuobstradio we want to celebrate this harvest time in sounds and stories amidst the trees of the historical orchard close to the Big Pond in Altenburg, Thuringia.

From 2 to 6 pm on Thanksgiving Day, October 1, 2023, we will be broadcasting directly from a Thuringian orchard. What is this sound of apples dropping into the wet grass? Of the spores floating amongst pollen and dirt? What recipe did your grandma use for her plum jam? What are sounds of the pleasures of harvesting the goods of the garden? Datscha Radio wants to find out – and needs your radiophonic autumn treasures!

Here comes a sneak preview of our program.
Each broadcast is additionally structured by some fixed features in the program, like the daily garden talk over the phone, the slightly crazy ‘arbor maze expedition’ with DJ Shlucht and Geranium blonde, or the “listening after nature” with field recordings from gardens around the world.

Of course, all details are subject to change – even a radio garden cannot be planned in a week.

Day 1 Shacks und Palaces (3.8.2023) 

Datscha Radio will be introduced to arbors and palaces, which have a good hundred years of tradition in Altenburg. But who owns the parks and gardens today? Who lives in them? And why? Datscha Radio asks how much community an allotment garden can take, which weeds can be put on the plate and listens to the wind in the willows…

Guest: Dana Weber

Day 2 ‘Headlights’ and Ears (4.8.2023) 

In hunter’s language, lights mean the eyes of the deer… which in turn also has very beautiful erectable eavesdroppers. We concentrate on the visual, art in nature, nature as art.

We accompany the forester Mr. Paritzsch through the Leina forest and let him explain what we can learn from the forest and ask: Can we also learn something by just listening to the forest?

A text and sound collage then takes us to Dresden to the allotment garden association “Flora 1”. Sonya Schönberger talked to people whose paths cross in the allotment garden about their memories and future prospects and created a feature from this, with Norbert Lang contributing the sounds.

Guest: Viktoria Scholz

Day 3 Skies and Flies (5.8.2023) 

Datscha Radio visits a star observant garden in Altenburg and asks which plants are addicted to the moon and how much light a garden can actually take? Do flowers change their shape in starlight?

Reichlich Wissen über Insekten bringt auch Christiane Nienhold mit, die sich als Eine-Neue-Welt-Pflanzerin für neue Strukturen und für eine naturverbundene Welt mit Hilfe des Gärtnerns einsetzt.

Guests: Frank Vohla, Christiane Nienhold

Day 4 On-Lookers and Birds of Passage (6.8.2023) 

Proper German allotment gardens are not allowed to erect fences higher than 1.20 meters. In this way, they separate plots from each other, but also allow for coexistence. Allotment gardeners may have their own individual plots, but they share the same listening space. Datscha Radio about borders and boundaries and about the communal and social traits of gardening.

90,6 MHz im Radio!

Datscha Radio narrow-broadcasts in a small radius of the Historic Arbor Garden on FM on 90.6 Mhz. The technology we use for this is a transmitter with a very short range. In doing so, Laubenlauschen strives to encourage shared listening…. in times of ubiquitous digital devices a real rarity!

Bring your old radio into the garden, pack a cushion and maybe a drink and listen in !

Also – the citizens of Altenburg have noticed – our postcards are ready printed and are available at the usual suspicious places in the city as well as in the Vereinhaus der Einheit e. V..
