Dear Willem,Thank you for supplying me so fast with the pressrelease of your deep idea: the sewerfestival.

To my disappointment I cannot make it to come. Within the next weeks I have twice to go to Brussels and once to Manchester. This does not leave time for any other trip.

Good luck for you
would be great if it turns out to became a hit.

You certifiably insane crazy man, you.
I have just watched the video on your rioolfest website. WONDERFUL!!!Do you know about the International Sound Symposium held here (St. John’s,
Newfoundland) every two years? Sewer sound would be terrific for it. The
next Symposium is in July 2006 — but they are taking artists’ applications
now. Deadline tio apply if July 2005.
Here’s the website:
http://www.soundsymposium.com/home.html

It’s a great festival, and you should come! I have nothing to do with
organising it, but have made a performance at it 3 years ago. And of course
I live here and will buy you lots of beers if you come.
So think about it.

Maybe I’ll see you at the IFC?

Keep Krazy.
Chris

Lorelei Harris (RTE, Ireland)

When I came to live in Ireland back in the Dark Ages as a budding social anthropologist, there were no jobs and no money and somehow I ended up working in radio.
It hadn’t been a lifelong passion. In South Africa, where I grew up, radio was an instrument of the apartheid regime and not really something to be embraced.
Of course, this changed. I worked at first on a daily talk show which was at the coalface of setting a new social agenda for the time frozen Irish state.
Then there was a spell in current affairs. Finally, there was features.


(Lorelei Harris, May 2005)

Initially, I produced features series for RTE Radio 1, the general information channel of Irish public service radio.
After a few years of this, I ended up working exclusively on documentaries and became Commissioning Editor for documentaries for RTE Radio 1.
It was a good time for us. We won numerous national awards, special commendations in the Prix Futura (for Dreaming Of Fat Men) and Prix Italia (for The Magdalen Laundry and Letters To Ann), two Prix Italia (for Dreaming Of Fat Men and Who Is Izzy Baia?) and a Prix Europa (for Nestwatch 2000).
Now, I don’t really make programmes anymore.
I work as the Editor of Arts, Features and Drama for RTE Radio 1 with a group of thirty fantastic producers.
I’m chairperson of the Ake Blomstrom Awards Committee at the moment and I’ve served on the EBU Features Group since 1996 (I think!).

My first car was a Trabant. It was stubborn and slow like a snail. In 1991 I bought the car for 50 DM. This is equivalent to about 25 Euros today. So the hard cardboard got its bread of live from me. Together we drove into freedom and like a fairytale we drove around in a new life. None of us foresaw the quick end.


(Ulf Koehler, Ten years ago // The Photo was made by Mr. Bethsold.)

My radio-career started very early, too early for my liking. It started at that time while sitting every afternoon in an armchair listening to the radio.
There I forgot my name, the time and all, but everything.
At the age of twelve I possessed a world receiver. I wired the aerial around the water pipes in order to improve the reception. Thereby falling asleep still hearing the vibrating sounds of the short waves. So began my first travel to the Orient. Years before the fall of the wall I had already been to Arabia, but in my dreams.

After that I decided to become a professional radio-technician with soldering iron, circuits, transistors, resistors, electrical coils and all that’s connected to this job. This job entailed working in three shifts. During my working time I looked for mistakes and made necessary improvements. (At that times the FM-scale was limited by 102 MHz.) The only reception was the ”düdeldüdeldühhh’ of the ‘Euro-sound’ The radio receivers were calibrated at this frequency to make sure that every station had its place at that particular radio scale. It was strongly forbidden to listen to other radio programmes, only the ‘Euro-sound’ – the Düdeldüdeldühh…
The musical and political care was strictly and solely in the hands of the central operator of the company.

After the falling of the Berlin Wall I took photographs and wrote stories. I was nobody and the world didn’t wait.
My first recordings for the radio dealt with social issues concerning the copper mining in the Mansfield Copper belt, for instance.
I was interested in social themes reflecting the daily life of the men on the street, whose voices are still remaining unheard.

In winter 1993 I left Germany and bought a hat made from rabbit furs and decided to start a new life in Russia. That succeeded! At that time, my time in Moscow, I wrote a documentary and called it ‘Let’s drink on Mischa – Russia in March’. In 1995 the documentary was awarded the ‘Kurt-Magnus-Preis’ and was broadcasted on several stations of the ARD.
After working as a freelancer I became a member of the editorial staff of the MDR. Together with my colleagues we developed several series as well as short and long documentaries for the radio. In our editorial-office we established a close partnership to the television department of our company and developed together with our RBB documentary makers the over ten year old national cooperation.

In 1995 we won the Prix Futura and 2003 the ‘Robert-Geissendörfer-Award’.
After a short stop at the University for the coaching of young radio makers in Feature I continued working in the editorial office for documentaries. Since 2001 I’ve been working as head of the editorial office. We are especially interested in doing documentaries, creating national and international co operations as well as telling stories about issues behind the ‘journalistic curtain’.

Hello

I’m unhappy that cities around the world today look more and more alike, with the same shops, the same restaurant franchises, and the same advertising billboards, and so on, and I don’t like the way we’re so often harassed by noise in public spaces, but somehow the Sewer Festival in Hilversum strikes me as an absolutely brilliant idea. Perhaps because it makes people more aware of their surroundings, rather than less. I can imagine people starting to look around when they hear these unexpected sounds. They probably notice the sewer grates for the first time, and they might even look at other people and maybe even smile. How ironic! Maybe they even start to wonder what other secrets their city has been keeping.

I want to thank you for a great story. I listen to the radio for hours every day and it’s mostly rather depressing stories about things I’d rather not know about. This one, however, made my day. I love hearing about creative people who get us to think in new ways about what we take for granted.

I looked for the artist’s name on your website, but didn’t find it. Thank him for me.
