transit-trucks make literature
a real-time radia work from ernst reitermaier, barbara kaiser, and lale rodgarkia-dara. the whole piece was recorded in the car on the truck-route from vienna to bratislava.
transitliteratur is a project where small pieces of literature are placed on transit-trucks. the idea is to use trucks as mobile-media-platform. this radia programme is the auditive attempt of this idea.
during the recording of radia#66 transitliteratur our recording-team followed transit trucks on the way from vienna to bratislava. we were in contact with around 15 people via our cell-phone. by the time the car passed a truck, one of them supplied us with a small reading. the texts had been read in 8 languages (russian, serbian, italian, spanish, english, german, czech, hungarian). the whole project is in realtime and has not been edited.
enjoy the sound of the truck-route between the closest capitals in europe. not the vatikan and rome, but vienna and bratislava.
