Preview: Nightgardening in Berlin

The night is, far more than the day, a sphere of transmission. Fragrances and odours are perceived more strongly, the ear is sharpened, the superiority of the visual recedes.

Since its inception, Datscha Radio has paid special attention to the night. We have broadcast pieces by selected composers and sound artists and, in the “Surprises de Minuit”, conducted interviews, which would never have materialized in the hustle and bustle of the day.

In the three-part event series NACHTGÄRTNERN [NIGHT GARDENING], Datscha Radio intends to fill the living space of the night in a synaesthetic and radiophonic way.
The locations will be three different gardens in Berlin, where we will make radio. We will broadcast live, from exactly sunset to sunrise. (Depending upon transmission date, the transmitting time will vary by around one to two hours.)

I The Night of the Nightingales (April 30th)
Datscha Radio explores the essence of the night on the first evening with a focus on the nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos). The Date is expected to be April 30th, 20.32 – 5:33, May 1st, 2019.

More information in due course.
