Wurfsendung

Sound artist: Amirabbas Mohammadi
Project Director: Julia Tieke

The Wurfsendung presents radio art in ultra-short formats: radio plays, features, and sound art in a maximum of forty-five seconds. Since September 2004 Deutschlandfunk Kultur has produced over 2,600 Wurfsendung segments in approximately 250 series. The Wurfsendung segments are scattered throughout the daily program of the radio station. Without a set timeslot, they can be heard during a music and literary magazine, noon report, or a philosophy program, and in between interviews, music, reports, and news. The experimental format cultivates absurd thoughts, new perspectives, and intelligent humour. For SAVVY (documenta 14 Commissioned Sound Work) Funk artists produced new Wurfsendung contributions, which, together with a specifically curated selection of older pieces, randomly punctuate the Program. The Wurfsendung is produced by the radio art department of Deutschlandfunk Kultur.

Special thanks to all the colleagues and friends who helped me to realise this project.
