Ö1 RadiokunstKunstradio

ORF musikprotokoll is a radio festival and is once again broadcasting a number of live concerts this year. We invite the public to the Ö1 Klassiktreffpunkt (Classical music meet) at esc medien kunst labor, and on Ö1 Kunstsonntag (Art Sunday) we take a condensed look back at the festival before all concerts are broadcast on Ö1 Zeit-Ton in the following weeks. On Ö1 Radiokunst Kunstradio, finally, Jacqueline George paints a portrait of her home town. “Cairo is full of sounds,” the sound artist explains, “you won’t find a moment of silence anywhere.” When she walks along the streets, it feels like being in a big orchestral concert and hearing countless musical voices all at the same time. Some appear abruptly, others slowly fade in and out again. Some are very close, others far away. Cairo is loud, George continues, but the incessant noise is also a cornucopia. For many years now, she has been collecting the diverse sounds, weaving them together in her very personal stories.
