Dinge, die zu verschwinden drohen: SWR2 Interview Tandem

SWR2 has this one hour interview format where they invite people to talk about their work, passions, ambitions. I was asked to bring three songs with me and chose the Gassenhauer by Carl Orff and Meike Kaji`s Shura no Hana. Somehow we span towards the impermanence of being and what kind of longing that creates and how that so often rises from my writing. The full interview with some of the songs can be listened to here.

Kartografie für die Ohren. Beitrag auf Bayern24 von Max Sippenauer

Wonderful radio piece on our "Atlas der ungewöhnlichen Klänge", Isaac Yuen`s and my collaboration on the world of sounds. "Im "Atlas der ungewöhnlichen Klänge" wird man immer wieder überrascht. Wer setzt Klang als Waffe ein? Wie klingt der Flirt eines Pinguins? Wie die Höhlen der alten Schamanen. Das Außergewöhnliche ist dabei oft gar nicht so weit weg. Dreht man etwa die Frequenz eines alten AM Radio auf das Rauschen zwischen zwei Sendern, hört man den Urknall." You can listen to the piece online here.

Aspekte des Lebendigen. Interview with Textmanufaktur.

When my schedule allows, I teach Nature Writing. It is all about opening portals of sensing into what lies deep within us and connects us with the so-called natural world. We do exercises and explorations and I learn just as much as my students do. „The trees, the animals and the rivers: every aspect of the world remembers all we do and all we say, and even sometimes, what we dream and think. This is why we should take great care with the thoughts we formulate, for the world forgets nothing, and each of the elements within it sees, hears and knows, what has happened, what is occurring now and what lies ahead." Natasja Martin, in: In the eye of the wild.

Textmanufaktur, one of the schools I teach, interviewed me on my approach to Nature Writing. You find the interview here.

Nur was man wirklich versteht will man auch schützen. HR2 Doppelkopf. Interview.

Juliane Spatz came all the way to Berlin to interview me for this one hour show on Hessischer Rundfunk. Doppelkopf is a fun format where the interviewed can suggest music that goes along with the stories she shares. We talked about my work as a Wave Writer for the Okeanos Foundation of the Sea, about keeping a sacred space for dreaming, upcoming projects and why I chose Nature Writing as a form of expression. The full interview with music by Brian Eno, Lou Reed and Hadaka no shima can be found here.
