First released as a live streaming show on Jolt Radio, this episode represents the sonic adventures of host Cathy Byrd in Berlin, the city where she spent two of her six weeks in Europe this year. Hear drummers performing in the Karneval der Kulturen and encounter the music scene in Mauer Park. Learn about the sound art featured on Deutschlandfunk Kultur from curator Marcus Gammel. Meet Ahmet Ögüt, one of the hosts on the documenta 14 radio program coming to Berlin. Visit the studio of artist and musician Satch Hoyt to experience his Unpacking Sonic Migrations: From Slave Ship to Spaceship performance. Follow Cathy on her visit to SAVVY Contemporary where she meets co-artistic director Elena Agudio, and listen to Oye record store owner Markus Lindner talk about Berlin’s vinyl culture.
We produced Sounds of Berlin with the support of listeners like you during our 2017 Destination Fresh Art field expedition.
