A series of Story-Telling events by and with ZONKEY (Angela Melitopoulos und Kerstin Schroedinger)
in the yurt on the Toten Mann in Alberndorf in the Pulkautal.

With Omnia Sabry (artist, Kairo), Renate Ganser (herbalist, Wien), Barbara Glowczewski (anthropologist, Paris)

The starting point are the musical experiments of the music project ‘Learning to Speak with Earth’ by the group ZONKEY (Kerstin Schroedinger and Angela Melitopoulos), which began in March 2020.
The events are part of a long-term study on interspecies communication that uses sound and
field recordings. Research is carried out with electroacoustic experiments and voices in order to be able to understand
the connections with the earth, with its layers, living beings and movements on the surface, as history
The aim is to experience the process of communication and listening as a process of transformation in the narrative.

For each event an expert / storyteller is invited to the narrative space of the yurt, with a focus on storytelling.
In the vicinity of the yurt, the transmission of the sound field is also relevant, since the sound and listening create the possibility of making connections between
human and non-human actors in the environment comprehensible.
