(As professional migrants, we pack a lot of suitcases. But what’s the one item that you always take with you, wherever you go? That’s the question we ask our lecturers in this series.)
Pt.6 Jan Kühnemund
I love noise, in fact I need it. Anywhere, any time. At work, at home, on the bike, in the car – and even more when I travel. As I’m not pleased with just any noise I use to take along my own. The security personnel at airports always seems to be a bit worried about the sheer number of technincal devices in my suitcase: music players of different size, portable hard discs, numerous cables and chargers, and – by far most important – tremendous head phones [and, well, you know, one is not enough as it might go west…]
In my dreams I own a portable record player (record as in vinyl record, i.e. real record). I would have to do without a second set of cloths to bring at least some of my favourite records… Well.
