Audio-CD included in the Swiss National Sound Archive | Lugano

The Swiss National Sound Archive (the sound archive of Switzerland based in Lugano) has included and archived the Audio CD The Silence of the Shadows – Mosaic of a Search | Poetry & Music as a so-called "sounding cultural asset".

HörCD mit Tray und Schweizer BergeSince Switzerland has no law on the deposit of mandatory copies at national level, as is the case in Germany, and furthermore we are not Swiss artists, it is something special that the Swiss National Sound Archive has decided to include our audio CD in their inventory. The CD is now researchable and excerpts are available for "preview".

The associated appreciation that our audio CD is relevant to the history and culture of Switzerland is certainly also related to the fact that our project, among other things, was funded by the canton of Valais and “artbellwald.ch”.
