radia # 697: Assasi machine by Kerry Priest und DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE

two programmes by Soundart Radio Dartington

Assasi Machine
by Kerry Priest

If we could hear the voice of nature, what would it say? And could humans use technology to strengthen their connection with nature?

Starting with the music and letting this guide the story, the Assisi Machine is a thrilling murder mystery which puts electronic sound technology at the heart of the action.

The show features three drone music sound collages which help move the plot along.

Parts of the play are written in dramatic verse, a favourite form of Shakespeare and Goethe, which is almost unknown in recent times.

Fruitcake by Cheyenne und Calypso
The title of “Fruitcake” evokes a lost world of English teatime, as well as the mixed up and unpredictable nature of this piece.
Produced by two teenage girls as a response to growing up in a quiet but strange Moorland town in the South West of England, “Fruitcake” contains a blend of interviews with older residents of the town, dramatised sections set in an imagined 1950’s community, improvised music and a bit of giggling and mucking about. In their words:
“We’ve been cutting and pasting and things. Basically our story is about two friends growing up in the 1950s in Buckfastleigh. It’s a very hearwarming tale of joy and friendship. And it’s sad and it’s lovely and you’ll love the people in it. You will laugh and you will cry and you will make new friends in this amazing world of Buckfastleigh. Come and visit us. We’re not a bit crazy.”
