National Evening of Sounds Radio Programmes

A series of radio interviews with local and international professionals.

National call-in programmes involving journalists, researchers and artists from Finland, Slovenia and Serbia: studio hosts, sound researchers and sound artists, including pre-edited inserts from sound art workshops in care-homes. First, a national program is planned and broadcasted. Second, a Trans-European three-hour programme in collaboration between three public-funded radios is broadcasted. As part of the Evening of sounds project, RadioTeatar is contributing a live event with an artistic exploration of vanishing melodies and soundscapes, including older people's memories of the sounds of their city, childhood, songs and past, entitled “Our songs, our dreams”. The author team continue to produce reflections of this research, that are focused on melodies and soundscapes of older people’s childhood and youth, based on the documentary exchange of experiences. In parallel, the author team of Radio Slovenia under the artistic direction of Saša Rakef Perko, conducts research and production of the same thematic setting, but in a different city, with other residents and with different memories.

Evenings of Sounds - Slovenia

The first in a series of evenings dedicated to sounds and memories which aired on Monday, 15 May 2023, on the First Program of Radio Slovenia, followed by a second Monday evening on the ARS, and a third internationally themed evening between First Program, Val 202, and the ARS.

Evening of Sounds - Serbia

During 2023, on Radio Belgrade, RTS, as part of the WP6 project, shows were published under the triptych titled “Sounds and Memories”. Through interviews, people aged 75 and above remembered specific sounds and the emotions these sounds caused. From this editorial concept came three different shows – debate, national, and live shows; documentary, which presented Radio Belgrade at the Prix Italia 2023 competition in the documentary show category; and international, aired live/on demand, whose production was the most difficult.
