"A VOCHEL WO RED"
Anna Schimkat & Michael Barthel
Bei dir piepts wohl
A VOCHEL WO RED (translates into "A bird who talks" from the German Hessian dialect) is a
conceptual album that deals with the tradition of animal voice imitation. It focuses
exemplarily on bird calls, as these are used extensively for species identification.
Schimkat and Barthel take up the acoustic fabric of nature noises, try to penetrate
the huge storage of information it contains and reinterpret it by means of abstraction
with noises, field recordings, text-recognition software, voices, recorders, birdcage
and birdseed, as well as a prepared turntable. Twelve compositions of electroacoustic
music and sound poetry.
