Radio Premiere of “Half of the World”
Friday, 16th December 2016
Half of the World is the first piece which I made specifically for radio broadcast. The broadcast is part of a three day festival called The Life Intense, hosted at W139 in Amsterdam.
For a life visit to this broadcast of Radio RAAR, hosted by Joshua Thies, visit Warmoesstraat 139, 1012 JB Amsterdam.
The piece: All field recording material was made in Isfahan in February of 2016. I was there teaching field recording and playing a concert as part of Limited Access Festival 6, and used all of my spare time to capture the sounds at the old bazaar and some other places.
The poem is by Mohammad-Taqi Bahar.
Male voice: Siamak Anvari
Female voice: mine
