// this show is dedicated to the unknown musicians I have recorded over the past years during what guy debord describes as ‘dérives’ or ‘psychogeographic drifts’: the experimental exploration of the environment through coincidence and other methods to disturb your normal behavior  or motivations as a pedestrian or car driver. drifting is the search for an ecstatic moment or ‘ecstatic truth’, like werner herzog says. if I get on a track – I try to document what I find //

// sometimes I had to borrow a cellphone, or I used a crappy digital cam to record //  that’s why this show isn´t a high-end surround sound field report  // this radio show is about these ecstatic moments  // for example: I followed people to a bar in hungary … and some solo entertainer is playing … people drink beer and dance // I walked through a block party and ended up in a street riot … people dance to reggae music and you hear bottles shattering on police cars // you will hear music from some gatherings, a powwow, indonesian rituals, music from a record shop in turkey, from hippy parties or bonfire music in the mid-west  //

// some of these records are done before GPS was in every technical instrument … that´s why this show isn´t a sound-mapping cartography // most of the time I don’t even know what the people are singing about and I don´t know the names of the bands – if they even have names // sometimes I can’t locate the places anymore, because the goal of psychogeography is to get lost, and to create an altering reality //
