      and a link to the Phonogramm Archive in Berlin (thanks to Ben Owen)

      through the southern states of the USA
      and will perform translations
      from gullah/pennsylvania dutch/creole/cajun french/tewa and navajo

      Soichiro Mitsuya will translate his amazement and wonderment
      about the ongoing noise constructions on Alexanderplatz in Berlin,
      and will use a special setting to amplify his recordings.

      Michael Northam has freshly arrived in Berlin
      after a six months stay in India.
      His soundworks will be based on recordings made in that period.

      Ben Owen from freepoint radio in New York will be the DJ.

      For those who think of coming to Berlin some day, or those in Berlin who are
      interested in the Berlin Phonogramm Archive, I will link to the liner notes
      Ben send me.
      It is a lot of text, but it could as well be the description of your next
      holiday destination...I mean ..places to see and visit in Berlin...

      The Berlin Phonogramm-Archive was founded in September 1900 and soon became
      an important center of Comparative Musicology. To celebrate this important
      anniversary an international conference titled "100 Years Berlin
      Phonogramm-Archive: Retrospective, Perspective and Interdisciplinary
      Approaches of the Sound Archives of the World" was held from September
      27--October 1, 2000, at the Enthnologisches Museum (formerly known as the
      Völkerkundemuseum) in Berlin, Germany. More than 60 papers were presented by
      archivists and ethnomusicologists from over 30 countries. UCLA was
      represented by Daniel Neuman, Anthony Seeger, and Louise Spear.
