After exploring oral literature, this time in the area of Basque Country and the Baltics, as well as after dealing with migration and representation of poetic elements along the edges of European geography, the authors show the installation through various forms of media – poetry, video, instant photography and sound. The sound aspect of the installation conveys phonographic recordings as a migration through the space of isolated local radio frequencies. Programmed radio antennas rely on existing frequencies and generate new channels – the signal travels in free space.
Songs / poetry of local authors are selected and documented, giving the visibility to authors from the “edges” of Europe. One such encounter was with Bertsolari poet Jon Maia – leading traditional composer and singer of Euskara bertso verses, who improvises, creates and sings the verses in the moment, right now. Therefore, present remains their only time of being.
