AURAL MAPS (2020-)
A non-linear narrative exploration of Aurality throughout sounds, stories and interviews. On Archipel Stations / FRBB FM88.4 90.1 Berlin / Potsdam

AuralMaps#1 in which we learn from occitan folk songs, listen carefully, silently in kissa bars, meet spirits from across Brazil cosmologies, travel to the moon and back, to Brazil again, cross the harmonic space and get stuck in a transcendental degradation loop

AuralMaps#2 in which we follow Fodéba Keita and the Ballets Africains in their panafrican journey, receive Postal Pieces from the Harmonic Space people, take a walk through a radio garden, meet occitan birds and poets blowing down walls, and get enlighted by the joint endeavours of troubadours and Sufi poets

AuralMaps#3 in which we make kin with sonic monsters from Mali and Java, deep dive in modern cathartic rituals, surface in the occitan sky towards spiritual ecstasy with the Coltranes, and, returning to Mali via the Amazon, pay tribute to Yehia le marabout 

AuralMaps#4 in which we listen to arboreal matters, discuss decentralized electronics and Roma music, hang out at Café Aman, get transported by the beauty of out-of-time / out-of-place improvisation, learn about equivalencies in the vibrational multiverse and anti-gravitational voices, are teared appart by other voices, from the Psyche, from the Andes

AuralMaps#5  in which we settle in Berlin Neukölln’s new music venue KM28 to listen under the aula of Karlrecords to the encounter of 3 fantastic improvisers, Audrey Chen, Ale Hop and Aidan Backer, and receive intermittant rays of sounds from West Africa, Algeria, Middle-East, South-East Asia via Berlin, and Occitania.

AuralMaps#6 in which we invite Berlin based improvisors JD Zazie, Tony Elieh and nikoLFO to radiate between bookshelves some live electronics and field recordings from around the world at Zabriskie bookshop, to later on seat and talk about the secret cinema room of the library of Alexandria
