Listen and Participate: The Work of the Hörspielmacher Paul Plamper
In his paper, Vito Pinto focuses on questions concerning different ways of listening in the theoretical framework of media and radio theory. This is the base for the analyses of three radio plays realised by Paul Plamper. Pinto concentrates on the different types of voices performing in these plays, as most voices and sounds were recorded on location resp. in realistic settings, particularly emerging from (theatrical) improvisation. He discusses specific ways of how spatiality and soundscapes are created and perceived in these plays and he shows how these works thus go far beyond traditional modes of radiophonic experience.
