Local Radio

Michael Holland facilitates a workshop on sound recording and sonic experimentation

Swiftly twisting swings, pollen-collecting bees, stories of the long-closed school and local students’ games – these and many other ‘agents’ have become part of Local Radio. During the a five-day sonic experiments and explorations, together with curator and educator Samantha Lippett (UK), radio host Michael Holland aka ONOTESLA (UK/LV) and film director Rokas Steponavičius (LT), the students of Lygumai Primary School created a library of recorded sounds that later turned into a radio program. Recordings unveil quick ways of finding playgrounds in the former school, the legacy of the past intertwined with the summer funs, and the issues that concern children and the founders of Akee today.

The presentation event of Local Radio will take place on September 16th, 5.30 PM at Mokyklos st. 7, Lygumai, Pakruojis District
