For the time of our stay in Montevideo we were part of the radio.earth network initiaded by Udo Noll. On the rooftop of Casa Tatu a live microphone was installed listening to the ever changing environment.
radio.earth is a participatory radio project concerning the ecological crisis, its effects on our environment and ways of life and on the possibilities for action. The project aims to establish a network of collaboration between individuals and organisations interested and engaged in these subjects, with all their respective practices from art and science to activism.
Among other practices, it encourages critical listening to live soundscapes from 1st to 3rd natures. In this context, 1st to 3rd natures refer to sites of various degrees of land usage and devastation, from wild nature to urban, industrial and agricultural zones. 3rd natures are rather cultural configurations, open and speculative and interwoven with the idea (and problems) of the Anthropocene.
