Original transmission Deutschlandfunk Kultur, Sound Art:

JUKEBOX | 25 miniatures

Sound composition by Götz Naleppa (2021)

Recording, composition and production: Götz Naleppa

Sound art goes pop: The good old Wurlitzer jukebox usually played records with songs by Elvis Presley, Harry Belafonte or Johnny Cash (7-inch / 45 rpm records, of course). In my sound composition "Jukebox | 25 Miniatures", the jukebox comes back to life and serves up 25 short sound stories, each between 40 seconds and 3 minutes long. Instead of "miniatures", you could also call them "aphorisms" = the smallest possible whole. That was my challenge when composing. The programme and the mood are announced by the first piece: "Just for Fun".
