GERM 361 - Radio Plays
In German, more than in any other language, radio plays developed into a highly sophisticated form of literary expression. Based on samples of original broadcasts of representative works by such authors as Aichinger, Bieler, Boell, Borchert, Ehrenstein, Jandl/Mayroecker, and Lenz, this course focuses on the historical development of this media-dependent art form, the "making" of a Hoerspiel in the studio as well as on the characteristics of spoken language and various sound effects (synthesizer, O-Ton, etc.) The course also aims at enhancing the participants'/listeners' power of imagination and the enjoyment of artistic expression via the spoken word.
