Show 386: Radio Dreaming by Anna Keleher and Claire Coté, Soundart Radio, UK
Radio Dreaming Episode 1: Dreams, Food and the Edible Landscape.
One year ago contemporary artists Anna Keleher (Devon, England) and Claire Coté (New Mexico, USA) were busy DREAMING PLACE at Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark in Éire and Northern Ireland. Now, an international audience can share their sonic adventures via a series of radio broadcasts woven from their experience. Based on an ancient Celtic tradition that the land remembers everything, Radio Dreaming explores how the land speaks through dreamers.
DREAMING PLACE is about deepening and illuminating our relationship with Place and we are excited to be sharing our project with audiences around the globe. Radio is an exciting medium that enables artists to reach people in their own homes or cars, in cities, small towns or very rural settings, says Claire Coté.
In this first Radio Dreaming episode, listeners are invited to join Anna and Claire wild camping, eating, drawing, walking and kayaking their way through the Geopark to meet its people, places, creatures and things. Episode 1 features stories, conversations and soundscapes of dreams, food, and edible geopark landscapes.
Our broadcast gives protagonism to the diverse voices of these Geopark homelands. We really hope that Radio Dreaming will inspire others to listen and share stories in their own homeplaces, says Anna Keleher. Anna began her successful international collaborative partnership with Claire in 2007 at Dartington College of Art on the innovative MA Arts and Ecology. Together they continue to make audio journeys, radio broadcasts, drawings, sculptural installations and performative events, transcending the miles through internet technologies. The only thing they can’t share is a pot of tea.

Show 387: Latesummer Night’s Dream (diving for pearls) by Paulo Raposo Radio Zero, PT
The perfect timing for shell hunting is immediately before and after low tide. At this timing, clandestine shell hunters suddenly come from the dunes and cross the low waters on foot. The small boats are stranded in the sand gently moving with the wind and soft south currents. At a distance, Flamingos that populate the area watch with intriguing poses these workers that spend hours on the water to get 3 to 8 kg of clams.
This collected field-recordings from and near the sand banks are edited and overlap different places where the shell hunting persists as a clandestine way of life.
