BAUSTELLE – The Beginning
Sound-artist AGF invited artist-composer Gudrun Gut to collaborate with her on a special recording session for BBC Late Junction – which was broadcasted in March 2009.
After getting together they quickly had found a theme for this recording: Baustelle / Construction Site.
They used field recordings from their own construction sites in Germany and Finland as well as other public construction sites and recorded 4 songs for the BBC session. One song from the 80s really suited the theme : ‘Wir Bauen eine Neue Stadt’ (trans. ‘We are Building a New City’,originally by Palais Schaumburg).
This was the first time AGF and Gudrun Gut recorded together.
At 2009 Strøm Festival in Copenhagen they each performed their own solo work as well as debuted parts of the “BAUSTELLE” recordings together- and afterwards finished the album recording in Hailuoto/Finland.
