Polish Experiments, Spaceship on Venus

Tonight, we sample Polish experimental audio from the 60s and 70s with a smattering of lively tunes designed to make you move and think at the same time. Fancy that. See the Polish-East German production (pictured) FIRST SPACESHIP ON VENUS (Der schweigende Stern)- 1960 in which recordings from the debris of the 1908 Tunguska meteor turn out to be a spaceship from Venus. To get to the drama, you have to jump the lengthy intro, itself debris from the once dominating male voice in literature where dry, lengthy descriptive introductions from the omnipresent narrator were the norm. Check the emperor Nehru character in the white hat, and the terrible dubbing.
