a free into rail ticket. from zum to french artists paint with empty beer bottles. and drink jam exploring the beautiful islands of cold food. first up we showcase one of the best and most affordable ways to travel across the continent into rail passes are railway tickets that give the holder unlimited travel across european countries this summer fifteen thousand passes were given out for free to eighteen year olds across europe that's all thanks to two berlin as who successfully campaigned to make their dream a reality or rather the dreams of travel hungry teams we've been keeping up with the journey of a young scot and met him in the czech republic where he is exploring the capital city prague.
traveling to prague by train. student aid and gets in from edinburgh has embarked on an intra led venture across europe. he's fascinated by prague stunning old town and of course no visit to the czech capital is complete without seeing the famous fourteenth century charles bridge. and even says some things remind him of his native edinburgh. you have a lot of street music and artists a lot of and so on. but i think prague is. it's very different i think actually nicer than i expected i think yeah the buildings are really amazing when you see it with your own eyes so very i think it's worth to come because it's lighter in person. just in trail take it has been paid for by the european
union. after even proposed the travel routes unsuccessfully and city europe has a jury picked him along with fourteen thousand nine hundred ninety nine other lucky eighteen year olds from the e.u. to embark on this unique trip through europe a journey with a mission. will be ambassadors of this program hopefully it's going to run for many years because i think it's good it's positive change and i'll be sure in my experiences through social media and. probably not giving talks but i could also do that if i wanted to. yeah that's pretty much it i will be an ambassador for. the free interrail program is the idea of martin spear and vincent him on the hill who lobbied brussels to introduce a travel program for young europeans. the interim take it itself has been around since one thousand nine hundred seventy two. vincent a man would have been a free travel across the continent can help youngsters overcome stereotypes about
their european neighbors. that's what the two of them experienced when they themselves went on and interact then sure years ago. experienced great hospitality we were invited to people's homes for dinner in cities we were visiting at the time. some would even let others know we were coming to the city a lot of those work ie moments for us all those new connections those new friendships that we struck up to us that really felt like europe. have a place we got a whole new perspective on europe and truly understand that europe is not so much about its laws or politics but about the diversity of its people. many of the lucky fifteen thousand teens are sharing their travel experiences on social media describing their encounters with the europeans but does this actually help forge a sense of european identity. critics point out that it does little good if all
these young travelers do is part of a nicer way. atum gets them from his past that's valid to spend time exploring the history of the countries he visits in prague's museum of communism and he's invincible the emergence of the former czechoslovakia and its times to the soviet union. he's one aware that after breaks it other british youngsters like him will no longer have an opportunity to win a free internet ticket. he's deeply disappointed with the outcome of the referendum . i think a lot of people voted blindly initially and they didn't really know what they were voting about they were kind of following government propaganda like communism actually. and then it's time for a cold beer. this is after all the home country of the pit.
after two days in prague it's time for aiden gibson to move on in trail could be described as a kind of speed dating the hero you've barely gotten to know place and you're confronted with another stranger. and quite often you travel alone which is just what an eighteen year old. can really meet so many other solo travelers. actually make maybe make some difference over the way you can actually have a very good time traveling solo so i really recommend. the next stops for aid in begin to put it past and. he'll visit for european countries in two weeks and take lots of fresh impressions home to edinburgh. where you can keep up with aiden's next few stops on our instagram page at d.f.w. your remarks where he'll be posting on insta story now we're headed on our own little journey across europe time to get you up to date in our express starting with a music festival in germany. in

be with and i get the impression we do better at things we've never done before and where the end result is completely uncertain will it work if you see how well it worked the design the hype and plan special about sound is that we perceive a lot of it some consciously and of course that gives us a great opportunity that we can use sound to shake moods from it linking current. and how do sound shape our perception something florian can investigate in his studio the stuttgart musician and composer develops new sounds. all types of clients. ok go back to the beginning please because. in recent years he's concentrated on museums for the hashtag mine museum exhibition in stuttgart stuff gallery for example he worked with students from the music academy to produce a kind of audio guide for smartphones. it's users get both information and music.
and i'm told by an eternity as you know in a sound environment that's different from say the parking garage we've just been in on your way to the museum from your own every day life in your announced in a place where you can move through the parks being done and experience the works of art hanging on the wall hanging from a different kind of perspective you. name it's a question. but isn't the endless barrage of sound more annoying than a relaxing silence. florian caplets says there is no relaxing silence in the museum void but he's a misfit we actually want this ambiance of conditioners and ventilators and fluorescent tubes that will give off sound and we can start there and ask couldn't and be some very very subtle ambience becomes even closer to absolute silence and if you did nothing you tonio called very managed must silence is in itself
a sound and museums temples of culture where reverent silence is expected from visitors. in mannheim xnu constantly museum florian kepler encouraged his music design students to go a step or two further. the idea was to make the museum a club where the art isn't in the eye of the beholders but is co-created by them. this into active aspect is reflected in the principal work florian couplet conceived for the mannheim codes tala the collect. should wall here the viewer can virtually experience almost every work in the museum's collection it's nice to interest rates and this is not only underestimated we're going to have of course only a very small parties on this plane but now everyone can come in at this point they don't pay admission rather than tell people about the works the museum has and then lock most of them away sometimes for decades but now everyone can see what they're
really interested in saida so i think this image i think they should. florian kepler is interested in nearly everything along with his museum projects the music designer is developing sounds for electric cars and visa horrific is a slight on and he supplied investigations can be turned the other way and be of interest music years while he was economics merriment with these driving algorithms meant to meet. with mint once again what i really love is when you see how both areas relate to and don't exclude one another. is. florian traveled a long way before he finally brought art and commercial success together originally the sound inventor wants to be a rock star. for a time his band held the pictures was the opening act for blood and bob geldof but the big break never came in hindsight it may have been for the best florian kepler
