// this show is dedicated to the unknown musicians I have recorded over the past years during what guy debord describes as âdĂŠrivesâ or âpsychogeographic driftsâ: the experimental exploration of the environment through coincidence and other methods to disturb your normal behaviorÂ or motivations as a pedestrian or car driver. drifting is the search for an ecstatic moment or âecstatic truthâ, like werner herzog says. if I get on a track â I try to document what I find //
// sometimes I had to borrow a cellphone, or I used a crappy digital cam to record //Â thatâs why this show isnÂ´t a high-end surround sound field reportÂ // this radio show is about these ecstatic momentsÂ // for example: I followed people to a bar in hungary âŚ and some solo entertainer is playing âŚ people drink beer and dance // I walked through a block party and ended up in a street riot âŚ 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-westÂ //
// some of these records are done before GPS was in every technical instrument âŚ thatÂ´s why this show isnÂ´t a sound-mapping cartography // most of the time I donât even know what the people are singing about and I donÂ´t know the names of the bands â if they even have names // sometimes I canât locate the places anymore, because the goal of psychogeography is to get lost, and to create an altering reality //
