“Interlude – Camp Freienorla” (from The Wreck of The Broken Landscape) (BLBH #12)

The story so far: Baron Landscape, former host of the inexplicably popular KBOO-FM program Baron Landscape’s Broken Hours, has returned to the airwaves after fifteen years to host The Wreck of The Broken Landscape (a Radio Tragedy in Three Acts) on July 18, 2008.

“Interlude – Camp Freienorla” occurs between Acts 2 and 3 and finds the Buccaneer Baron smarting from having undertaken an ill-conceived boating trip in the first ninety minutes of the program.  He arrives back in Portland, talks about the failure of the show so far, obtains a coffee refill, and plays an exclusive Sauvie Island Moon Rocket Factory track (thanks again, Dave Klopfenstein) before wandering into the marshy and mysterious “Freienorla Camp,” where he temporarily loses what’s left of his consciousness.   He awakes to discover not only that he has spilled his coffee, but also that he’s being held prisoner by a strange, unnamed captor. This mysterious warden who has an infectious laugh, and who is prone to meandering speeches, ultimately reveals the secret of the Baron’s long-postponed radio journey, or something.

Produced by Splice Finders for Broken Hours, and starring Baron Landscape as the flightless Dutch Boy.  The Wreck of The Broken Landscape was written and directed by Luke Lefler with special contribution by guest star Bob Scheu who plays the off-kilter camp counselor.  Cameo appearance by Melissa Sillitoe as “Suzanne.”  “Interlude – Camp Freienorla” was inspired by Jan Grünfeld‘s “Freienorla Camp,” which is featured prominently.  The producer wishes to extend his gratitude to John Hartog for the natural soundscape recordings that were used in this production.

    Hey, I’m trying to connect with Dave Klopfenstein. Can you help put me in touch with him? ~Kelly, an old friend of Dave’s.

    Hi, Kelly – Wish I could help. Dave and I corresponded briefly around the time of this show, but we did not maintain contact, so it has been several years. – regards, Luke
