‘NOWHERE CLOSE’ – excerpt (2011)
The boat goes up the river from Serbia to Croatia …
… From Belgrade to Vukovar, we listen to the stories of identity of the residents (concerns of territorial attachment), on the traces of war and on the questions of staying / leaving / to go home.
It is also the unique recording of a young Serbian artist, at that moment when he discovers with shock Vukovar for the first time, way far from everything he could imagine : “nothing on that photograph has the shape that is recognizable .. it looks like it used to be a street but nowhere close … ”
Delicate voice for floating words, brewed by the martial rhythm of tumultuous waters.
With voices from
Igor Stangliczky, Vukovar kids, swimming in the Danube, the serbo-croate singing group “Kudkrajina”of Belgrade.
Sounds of Belgrade, NoviSad, Vukovar, Bratislava.
Produced during the European Sound Delta fluvial residency, july – sept 2008, Collectif MU.
