The RADIOM ))) RADIÔME radio art network brings together artists from the Greater Region, a border-defying zone that encompasses Luxembourg and all its neighbour regions. Thanks to the initiative and tireless work of the Liquid Penguin Ensemble eleven artists produced and shared audio miniatures in a time of social distancing.

Once we were able to travel again all members of the network came together for a performace at KuBa in Saarbrücken which was broadcast live by public radio Saarländischer Rundfunk.

All performers were distributed around the whole space while the audience listened on wireless headphones.

The last edition of the CWCH collective season took place in Saarbrücken at the Saarländisches Künstlerhaus. Fellow CWCHees Katharina Bihler and Stefan Scheib had suggested this as an option to share a physical space with each other, and with a small audience, after months of regular performances that happened exclusively online.

For a detailed description and a full archive of CWCH shows please visit the dedicated project page.

To make full use of the spaces of the Künstlerhaus our set-up mirrored those of the CWCH collective so far: Sarah created the mix from all contributors, Katharina and Stefan were in the adjacent hall but still bound to the seconds-long delay of web-streaming, and the roaming audience had to visit a third room to hear the final broadcast.

Photo journalist Kerstin Krämer offered us the two images you can see below and wrote a report for the Saarbrücker Zeitung, positing that Orson Welles would have loved the evening. New Music expert Hubert Steins was in attendance too and conducted interviews that would find their way into his excellent portrait of the CWCH collective for Deutschlandfunk Kultur.
