1. The Story Of Alvarenga by Lucija Gregor.
I based the idea on a very personal “return to self” which was symbolically but also quite literally connected to the sea as a place of my childhood, fascination with its sonic qualities and colour. This radio piece is imagined as a personal search to reconnect again to a place that for me feels like home (a physical place and a mind space). That is how the story of Salvador Alvarenga, the sea wonderer who was lost at sea for 14 months served as a leading plot to underline my own personal wondering.
Lucija Gregov is a cellist, improviser and a liquid artist who creates and explores new sonic landscapes using cello, analogue synthesizers and processed field recordings. Her visceral approach to improvisation proposes a radically different way of creating, co-creating, thinking and performing in and about current sonic dynamic. Following indicators of flow, experimentation, investigation of unexplored physical and spiritual spaces, she enables emergence of practice and sound materials that are open-ended and continuously transformative. The sonic language she creates in her solo and collaborative performances comes close to what could be called a language of memory and dreams.
Produced by Worm/Klangendum 2019.
Composed and written by Lucija Gregov.
2. 3019 – a radio play by Vienna Radia Collective.
The year is 3019, the atmosphere has sunk to 50 cm, the sun burns the earth’s surface and people hide in caves and dig in the earth for food and riches of past civilizations. The elite has retreated to “red” and left the earth to the impoverished 99% and their fate. Humans long for the top, but still have to crawl because getting up is deadly. A new man enters the colony cave and messes things up. Will he possibly crawl up? And what will he find there?
