New dates for the Radical Ear 01 workshop!
At the Radical Ear 01 workshop Stories of Monuments, the creators of Zvučna mapa Beograda (Belgrade Sound Map) will present the basics of collecting stories in the local community and recording interviews on selected monuments and experience of public spaces. The workshop will be held in two parts:
1 part: MoTA Lab and Hrib svobode (Freedom Hill), Ilirska Bistrica
From Friday 18 August to Sunday 20 August
For the first part of the workshop we will travel to Ilirska Bistrica to discover stories about the monument on the scenic Freedom Hill. The monument by sculptor Janez Lenassi and architect Živa Baraga is one of the most characteristic examples of Yugoslav modernist monumentalism. Through recordings and interviews with local people and individuals connected to the monument, the participants will learn the basics of field recording, collecting stories and sound mapping of public space. Organized transport from Ljubljana to the location.
From Monday 21 August to Wednesday 23 August
The three-day second part of the workshop will teach the methods of creating sound archives of field recordings: from the initial idea and pilot research to fieldwork and mastering of recorded materials. This part of the workshop will deal with monuments in Ljubljana.
Zvučna mapa Beograda (Belgrade Sound map) is a project of Tačka komunikacije (Communication Point), a cultural associantion which deals with issues related to cultural heritage and cultural tourism. One of its central projects is Belgrade Sound map – a web page and app which allows the users to listen to stories of and about common places of different Belgrade districts. Tačka komunikacije also organizes sound and thematic city walks and workshops of collecting and recording stories.

The purpose of the Radical Ear! project is the development of sound installations, sound archives and sound maps through a series of workshops where participants gain the necessary knowledge in the fields of sound recording, sound documenting, field recording, mastering etc. The participants will learn how to organize and sort their archives and present them in a context.
