I had some fun adding maps and photographs to the latest episode of Moonpain Revisited – a little audio walk through the streets of Lisbon along with a few stories from Pessoa’s Lisbon recounted by Peter Poulsen (in Danish).
They’re displayed in podcast apps such as Castro (my personal favorite) and Overcast (also really good, and with a version for iPad) that support dynamic chapter artwork.
Apple’s Podcast App does support chapter artwork, but unfortunately only for images connected to chapter headings.
So for the best experience: Castro or Overcast.
I’m so happy that it’s been possible to make the wonderful material from @KlausIbJ ørgensen’s moonpain.nu site available in podcast form. Ep.1 includes Peter Poulsen’s essay on Pessoa’s Fictions, which I’ve found myself listening to repeatedly: poetiskpodcast.dk/produktioner/moonpain-revisited/pessoas-fiktioner
“Nothing in nature, no animal, no brain, works by executing an algorithm. (That’s what makes an algorithm so great – they’re a new idea.) An analogue computer is nearer to natural processes.”

“Language is music, and the music is concrete.”

It’s all in Danish, but it includes a link to a lengthy interview (in English) with Charles Amirkhanian: archive.org/details/pacifica_radio_archives-AZ0017
20 years ago, on a sunny winter Sunday morning, I began a walk with Bongi Dhlomo-Mautloa through Alexandra township. Sounds and stories recorded over the course of 24 hours were assembled into a 60 min soundscape – now also available in podcast form: rudigermeyer.com/music/a-walk-with-bongi-through-alex
OPTUR: a beautiful exhibition at A. Petersen (last day today!) with ball tracks and sculptures in wood that remind me of Ciat-Lonbarde and Willem Boshoff.
New blog post in which I’ve collected a few thoughts on the process of creating Altså netop nu – the @poetiskpodcast I did with Lars-Emil Woetmann:

The roof areas of our apartment building are covered with small plants and it’s great to watch the bumblebees enjoying these patches of green.
Apparently a boon for biodiversity and insect life in cities – the Dutch have even added it to their bus stops: ecowatch.com/dutch-city-bus-stops-into-bee-stops-2639127437.html
Punk poetry and finding a way of being in the world: Here’s a little epilogue to Altså netop nu, the podcast Lars-Emil @Woetmann and I have been sending out during the past eight weeks.
