longnightofyeastMobile Radio will be broadcasting 12 hours of live fermentation from a wine cellar in the Mosel valley.

Every autumn thousands of wine cellars in the Mosel valley, Germany’s premier wine growing region, turn into magnificent sound installations. Freshly pressed grape juice starts fermenting in barrels and the escaping gas bubbles through glass u-pipes, each barrel at its own speed. Mobile Radio has set up a stereo microphone in the wine cellar of bio-dynamic winemakers Rudolf & Rita Trossen in the village of Kinheim to capture and broadcast these fermentation sounds from 8pm to 8am CET, starting on Monday 4th November, documenting the work of yeast turning juice into wine.
