The queen, it is said, is stay­ing in her cast­le. She wants to expe­ri­ence the first radio con­cert ever broad­cast the way it is meant to be expe­ri­en­ced: at the recei­ver. There’s crack­ling, but then a musi­cal pearl appears and rolls bet­ween the queen’s ears. Her head: dis­em­bo­dies voices, pla­ce­l­ess ari­as, in the hove­ring enig­ma of sounds.

One to Many
by Angelika Waniek, Frederike Moormann,
Hauptmeier | Recker, Max Schneider
A visit to the ori­gi­nal loca­ti­on of the first radio pro­gram. Sparks are fly­ing. Inventors are wal­king along cor­ri­dors. And the­re is no ori­gi­nal. A pro­gram about the dif­fi­cul­ty of begin­ning a (his)story. And a brow­sing through a con­tra­dic­to­ry histo­ry and hundreds of radio beginnings.
