Sound of Ebb: “————“

Name: Frank Bogdanowitz aka Dr.Nojoke

Location: Berlin, Germany
Title: “————”

Description:
mixture of clicks & cuts and a collage of field recordings

The field recordings i made actually in egypt, turkey (muezzin)and in berlin (fireworks)
I re-contextualized them expressing my feelings to the political crisis in Iran demanding for humanity, freedom, tolerance and peace.
It could be in Israel, Palestine, Iraque, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uyghuristan …. or somewhere else as well.

In June i was churned up inside by the 20th anniversary of the massacre on the Tian Men square in Bejing first.
Then during the protest actions in Iran after the elections I followed links and information on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube to see what is going on there.
Although I am quite far away and I am not an Iranian I felt very close to the protesters. Emotions overwhelmed me and so for me it was really necessary to express them musically. I couldn?t find words for it!
In Berlin actually we are not suffering under the recession so much. Mostly we read about it.
But in times of the internet distances melt and you get nearly realtime information from diverse sources.
So my statement is based on the social networks I am using.
