The Journey of the Earthworm

Originally made for radia.fm. Show #592. Hosted by radio x, Frankfurt, Verena Kuni. The „Earthworm“ was featured within the frame of the Radiophrenia Festival in Glasgow.
Length: 27 min.

The earthworm travels on radio frequencies, earthy hacks and conglomerates of audio matter. S/he passes through mosquito clouds (yes, this earthworm can fly!), bird songs, thunderstorms, attends a Finnish summer theatre show, listens to a boy and his mother singing, visits the acoustic remnants of a German garden show, finds happiness in the ringing of porcelain bells and, finally, merges into silence and is gone.
Voices: Teuri Haarla, interview at Galerie Hilbertraum, 16th January 2016, Berlin, Germany; Unknown but stunningly convincing actors of a "kesäteatteri" 2010 in Mid Finland; Gibrain and Virpi Nurmi, Gießen, Germany, 2014.


For 2017, rumors go that the Earthworm will be also traveling to documenta14 public radio as part of a show curated by Knut Aufermann and Sarah Washington.
