radia #693 Cagetown - Fragments & DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE
a radio show provided by Usma Radio
Within The School of Radio, has been presented on 10 March 2018 Cagetown a concert that celebrated the 40 years of John Cage’s Train. Numerous artists took turns on the stage also confronting with unpublished images shot on the train in 1978 (black and white super8 films) from the Oderso Rubini archives. Some of the original sounds from the 1978 project were also part of Cagetown.
The School of Radio – radio art symposium took place in the Republic of San Marino from 9 to 11 March 2018. Three days of round tables, workshops, sound installations, photographic exhibitions and concerts.
At 40 years from John Cage’s Train and 20 years after the last edition of the Radio Art Festival, L’Arte dell’Ascolto, San Marino hosted a symposium/workshop – curated by Roberto Paci Dalò and Elisabeth Zimmermann – dedicated to Radio Art.
The experience of John Cage in 1978 also touched Rimini and Ravenna and you can hear the witnesses of those who were on the train to investigate this epochal project. L’Arte dell’Ascolto (LADA) was the festival that during the 1990s brought international artists to Rimini and San Marino working together on some of the pioneering projects between radio and internet. From the itinerant audio laboratory of Cage, a reflection is opened on the need (today as then) of the experimental sound laboratories of the radios.
The School of Radio: promoted by the University of the Republic of San Marino, Usmaradio and the Secretariat of State Education and Culture.

DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE
Show #497: “Where Have You Been?” by Maria Herold (Radio Orange 94.0)
This radio show will take you on a trip to various places in cities and countries. A canon-like conversation between city and country surrounded by field recordings from Austria (Vienna, Tirol), Italy (Ligura) and Switzerland (Valais) highlights the good and the bad sides of both. There are moments when they harmonize and fit seamlessly together, but sometimes they repel each other. You will listen to cows, people, waterfalls, birds, fire, cars, thunderstorms, trains and many other sounds.
Some field-recordings will be recognized from the very first listening but you will also hear recordings were you can´t be sure whether it is in a city or on the countryside. And maybe there will be the desire to be at one of those places. But whether you find yourself in a city or on the countryside, there will always be the longing for the countryside when you are staying in a city and the other way around.
