RADIA # 328: 'Radio on wheels' von Radia Papesse
La radio a pedali/ Radio on wheels is a project produced by Radio Papesse in collaboration with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Theatre and Radio Rai 3.
'Radio on wheels' is a participatory project with which Radio Papesse tried to trigger a reflection around the ideas of energy - released by art and culture - and sustainability of both cultural consumption and environmental habits.
On the occasion of the Nuit Blanche in Florence, last April the 30th, we invited cyclists to join a parade, to bring their own radio and to tune in to Rai Radio 3, that would have aired the live concert at the Maggio Fiorentino Theatre that very night: Beethoven and Liszt interpreted by Daniel Baremboim and the Maggio Fiorentino Orchestra, under the direction of Zubin Mehta.
We invited the sound artist and musician Alessio Ballerini to record the sounds of the parade and the show he has produced for Radia - along with the sound postcard of the ride - is just a bit of the entire and multilayered audio project he is still developing.
