Alessandro Bosetti

Alessandro Bosetti is a sound artist, composer, and performer currently based in Berlin.

His main focus is the fringe area between spoken language and music. Since 2001 he has been engaged in major radio art productions with almost all the national radio stations in Europe, and has created a vast body of work of hybrid, award-winning text,sound and radio compositions. Field research and interviews often build the basis for his abstract compositions, along with electro-acoustic and acoustic collages, trained and untrained instrumental practices, vocal explorations, and digital manipulations.


Children's America

Imagine an America ruled by children. They staff the post offices, run the schools, oversee the military, and decide on the form of government.

This hour: kids sing opera, they talk about life on a remote island, and they opine about running the world.


Approaching Approaches

Alessandro Bosetti talks of the tremors felt while approaching somebody else's life with a microphone in-hand, when fears of exploitation combine with implacable curiosity and the possibility that neither you nor your interviewee will understand each other's intentions.
