While completing her evaluation of the visit Mil Lusk from Bristol was interviewed by Bjella Prossowsky from Berlin:

‘Berlin bee, Fly with me’ was recorded in the ambient Sound workshop held in Kreuzberg Berlin. Adult learners collected sound samples from streets around the Görlitzer Park.  Participants have been Mirella and Alexandra (Bistrita),  Ivor (Bristol) and Bjela from (Berlin). The track was facilitated and produced by Alex of Frequency Surreal.

Second attempt – best viewed full screen. (Soundtrack: ‘I want Freedom’ by Chris Joss.)

Traditional style house. Economic hardship meant repairs were short-term and poor quality. All repairs now have to be approved with reference to an official 'Style-guide'. Grants are used to keep up standards. (Steve P)
