Anna Raimondo has been collaborating with Radio Papesse since last year, you may remember her Marsille Sound Portrait, a reportage from the Marrakesh Biennial or a sonic portrait of Madrid.
We are now pleased to present you a new work, a Sound postcard from Teheran, where she took part into the International Radio Festival of Iran.
I often wonder how I would perceive my body noises if I had no Eustachian tube or how I could distinct the pronunciation of a capital letter from that of a small letter. I’m very interested in barriers, especially those of the sound, any frontier in radio diffusion and all the different forms to interact with the audience, whom I lend my hear to. I prefer the phonetics of a language, its accents, reverberation and all the words I can’t understand. For this I like living in foreign countries whose correspondent language puzzles and charms me, from Spain to France, from Italy to Morocco, from Lavapiés Chipén in Madrid to rue Canabière in Marseilles. It’s in Marseilles that I’m currently training my ears and keeping my vocation for the radio alive, while working for Radio Grenouille in the program “Jusqu’ici tout va bien”. Let me remember also Radio Papesse, Radio Pan, Radio Vallekas, R22, Radio Circulo, Radio Tres (radio Nacional de España), and Italian magazine Platypus L’Eclettico.
