22.1. – 27.1.2019
sonOhr Selection

A selection of the best sound pieces from the sonOhr Radio & Podcast Festival.

The sonOhr Radio & Podcast Festival is the only platform of its kind in Switzerland for narrative and sonically creative audio works, held for the last eight years in Bern in February. The programme consists of competitions for Swiss radio plays by local radio stations and independent authors, as well as a curated international programme of live events and guests.

During this week, Museum Tinguely takes a tour through the sonOhr archive and presents gems from past editions of the festival. As with the festival as a whole, the focus is on shared experience of listening.
