Evgeni is back. You all know him from Voices from the Dark’s Mistaken Ideas, the podcast about logical fallacies. Here’s something a bit different.
In this episode, Specials #3, we break off from the usual format, and Evgeni gives us a glimpse into his recent silent meditation retreat. He’s done a retreat of this kind before, but he’s never shared his experience in this format.
In this episode I have the extreme pleasure to converse with the enigmatic host of the Sgambetto radio show, Emanuele (Emanuello, Manuelo etc.), who also happens to be the proprietor of the local Neukoelln bar, LaBettolab.
Special thanks as usual to RBL Berlin. This is the last episode of the Voices from the Dark–RBL Berlin 2018 collaboration. It’s been a great ride! The adventure will continue…
In addition to providing some news on upcoming shows and projects for Voices from the Dark, I speak with Signore Sgambetto about his plans for the new year, what his bar and his radio show are all about, and our planned collaboration. He shares details on how his show is a combination of his personal imagination, his inner life and his outlook on the world. We also discuss the importance of dialects in poetry, the power of spontaneity and the living experimental art space that is LaBettolab.
In this episode we present clips from the first five episodes of Voices from the Dark, all of which happen to be part of the Artists series, featuring interviews with Domink Watin, Grace Nicholas, Lalo Gomes, Alma, and Leanne Rivers. It’s a sort of retrospective episode intended to give listeners an idea of how things have progressed since the beginning. Voices from the Dark is a podcast that is as much about the medium of podcasting itself as it is about anything else. In these clips, you can see the difference between the various audio environments featured in each episode as well as a development of the recording techniques and equipment used.
Thanks as usual to the folks at RBL Berlin and LaBettolab. This is the penultimate episode of the 2018 collaboration between RBL and Voices from the Dark. The last episode will air on November 18th. Future projects with both RBL and LaBettolab will be coming out soon in addition to regular Voices from the Dark programming. Stay tuned!
