Matt Hatter’s Garden
Matt Hatter’s Garden

Radio piece with nightingale poems. 2016. 11 min.Composed for a Dinah Bird and Jean Phillip Renoult radio broadcast in a Paris urban garden. Also featured at Radiorevolten, Halle, 2016

Mr. Hatter is raking the lawn in his garden while a nightingale sings along. He seemingly suffers of tinnitus, but then again it is not altogether clear where we are: Inside Matt’s head? In a parallel mix-tape world where Keat’s “Ode to a Nightingale” is intercut with more nightingale poems in other languages? Mr. Hatter doesn’t give a damn… he rummages about, his mind spinning with occasional tango tunes and drippings from watering cans.
