3:37 am
did sleep well i wasn't scared at all during the night of course it's not that comfortable but seeing the stars in the night and waking up with this view i mean it's priceless. unbelievable the use of gold leaf in paintings decorative arts and architecture dates back thousands of years but it's becoming increasingly harder to find hand between gold leaf in today's day and age and that's because producing it this way is a fading craft for example in venice in the year 7800. there were 300 so-called gold beater's today however there is only one family dedicated to this ancient tradition there we visited the mario back to back to florida studio to see how they are keeping their gold leaf business alive.
3:38 am
much of what glitters here is indeed gold for centuries venice has flaunted its wealth with this precious metal. now all very few craftsman's shops are left that work gold by hand. in the many gaps of family runs one of the world's last gold beating shops under the name madea better come back you know to. that you don't really need that much strength for this work it's all a question of technique your technique actually helps you work with less effort because that's important because depending on how thin the gold is supposed to end up it will take anywhere from 50 minutes to 2 and a half hours to hammer it out in. the purest $24.00 carat gold is noted at over $1000.00 degrees celsius and cast as
3:39 am
a small bar which by itself has a value of about $6000.00 euros. ludicrous still a little gold bar is about 120 grams depending on the thickness required of the gold leaf we can make 80026000 pieces from it and you know for you. first the gold is passed through a rolling metal several times pressing it thinner each time it's rolled into a long rib in heated over and over and put through the mill again. this were to go with the colors nice and yellow you know the gold is pure. the hue tends towards a reddish you know it's an alloy no. it might then contain silver or a little copper. when the gold ribbon is several metres long
3:40 am
it's cut into lengths folded and cut again into little squares saddam in a god so these between sheets of parchment to separate them during the beating. packet consists of 331st they're beaten with the machine and then quartered once more and then they're worked with a hammer. to muck about. the final step is the hammering this is how gold leaf was made in venice a 1000 years ago at that time there were no machines to help with the heavy work. gruesome of the old hammer ways to kilos almost nothing this one weighs 4 kilos so it's a bit heavier but for me that's nothing and that 8 kilos well this one's pretty heavy for the hammering produces thousands of these gossamer leaves a single leaf ways barely as much as a hair eleonora many got so hopes this age old craft may be passed on to the next
3:41 am
generation. is all it's a great responsibility because this is very special work is in danger of dying out and that's not a nice thought that this could one day just be forgotten of it been static forces that. are restore and gilder elisabet the mouse song uses a great deal of madia better but the gold leaf in her workshop. it takes a steady hand and the right conditions to work with this delicate material. even a gentle breeze could ruin everything. chmod that the fitting difference between and dust really produced and hand made gold leaf is the norm and the industrial gold leaf is much thinner and more fragile it's really hard to do good work with. the leaf tears easily and in the end it just doesn't look as good
3:42 am
as the handmade gold leaf. the angel atop st mark's company is among the works restored using gold from audio better. thanks to an age old handicraft the queen of the adriatic shines on. british composer and musician cosmo sheldrake is a instrumentalists who uses nature as his inspiration well the chirp of a bird for example can serve as the source for his musical creations now it's hard to put sheldrake's music into one category but we have company time on location to see how he captures sounds for his musical.
3:43 am
british musician kosmos sheldrake feels a deep connection with nature the songs he composes are inspired by the world around him he works from a small solar powered studio deep in a forest in southern england. learn to play the piano at age 4 today he plays over 30 different instruments his 2nd album wake up calls features a range of bird samples. you know chuck the sounds out and arrange them a sampler so i can check it back different elements of what i've recorded in and then start to kind of color those sounds together and build the enter piece of music. whenever he can the 30 year old explores his lush the roundings 'd 'd hunting for sounds to sample. 'd nature to me i guess just means a celebration of life is just. one of the songs every life has a passion for living and i think it's just. just true isn't it just being
3:44 am
a natural place you just get that sense of just life busting for from becoming constantly. and. it's very hard to know what inspires. inspires me to seems to arrive sometimes on the wind maybe. so i'm recording the sound of the wind in the ghost bush it's quite chaotic kind of howling. gusty sound and i'm making a piece of the moment so involved winds. you can tell so many stories and through a piece of music or through sounds that would take you know books to explain. or cause no music is like poetry.
3:45 am
he's played shows in many different corners of the world and he has a soft spot for performing in nature. i mean i love playing outside. i for. one of my favorite things that seem to play to places of the people i think it's just as important to perform to in places and to places but often i'll go to a place i record sounds from that place make a piece of music and then take it back to the place and perform it back in the place i think places could listen to music i i'd like to think they could and i certainly believe that there are creatures in the place is going to use it. i'm seeing. a change right june june
3:46 am
yeah. 55 fry in. the cosmos music is an ode to the beauty of our natural environment which like his music never ceases to amaze. return our attention now to berlin which is a top address for international cuisine but anyone who comes here would be missing out if they didn't try the famous or the infamous corrie forest now you may just think it's a simple hotdog with a special spicy catch up but it is a much more complicated than that for a layman curry versed is prepared and served in different ways which determine the quality and taste we take a closer look now at the production of curry burst in and around berlin and what makes it so special.
3:47 am
this isn't working man's food it's not trendy food it's for everyone it's food for the homeless and the president alike of the don't think. there may be life without curry worst but in our case it wouldn't have much meaning. for me to read the berlin curry worst is the best way in the world have paid out that it. has to be believed curry words that any time of the day or night we open at 8 am and close at 5 am we're open 21 hours a day. i am less of vienna bitch i manage curry 36 in berlin is quite spare districts back to. lynn's original curry worst was only made of pork now there are
3:48 am
many other variations but we only sell curry worst made a pork or became curry worst as an alternative iannaccone wolf. for our current worst we only use genuine holland apple fed pigs from our own farm which i know. i am stepped on cause i'm head of production at the caught up oh farm but. we use pork belly shoulder and bacon and then add water in the form of ice for cooling . then of course comes the spices salt pepper and not make to give it a little personal touch and a little bit go to. next comes the filling food the curry worst is stuffed into an intestinal skin then it's cooked in a steamer. the berlin classic is the seanad hour on a palette meaning the curry worst has no skin one of the.
3:49 am
exam i get into al east germany we grew up eating curry wears without skin and we've stuck with that variation to this day. my name is doug my canuck we're standing here in front of our business does take away and i'm the 3rd generation to run it here. as a so you see my grandparents and parents introduce the curry worst without skin to east berlin 0960. and best placed really an arty had curry worst with skin back then and my grandpa was always interested in new products so he decided to introduce curry worst to east berlin intestines were in short supply back then so we had to make do without and today we're known in famous for just that. i like curry worst with or without skin curry
3:50 am
worst with skin should be nice and crispy but not too dry curry worst without skin needs to be very juicy but fried golden brown on the outside. of. the recipe for our sauce is a secret i won't tell it to anyone it's all stored in our heads. the secret to our sauce to be honest there's no secret it's just catch up made it 87 percent tomatoes a little sugar a little bit of a little spice and if that's it. you. live in the for every curry worst shop tries to be unique and promotes its own sauce in the end it comes down to the vendor's personal. taste. some at mango pulp or apple sauce or wish to share sauce or soy sauce it doesn't matter
3:51 am
as long as the guests like it. might or might not but i think it's important not to skimp on the sauce but we also don't want to drown the sausage and overpower it states that it's much to go. with the food it's not like there's one typical berlin curry worst without the vendors are making each of us sells what works best for us to apply to everything goes. to burning wood for a fire is common practice however burning wood for building seems like a contradiction in terms but now an ancient japanese method of charring wood is catching on in europe it's called shoes and it means refining by fire by burning
3:52 am
the surface the structure of the wood changes making it fire resistant now one dutch company specializes in this method and we were on hand to find out war. the idea here is not to burn the wood but to treat it following a traditional japanese method of vine and ties 3 forts together to form a shaft he then sets them up right over a flame by that you get something like a chimney fire and be interesting bob it used to be that there's a very good oxygen soldier who just don't really hurt but that's. the point is to preserve the wood fiber while eliminating the nutrients that attracted vermin and fungus that makes the wood more resilient and durable the japanese discovered this effect a long ago after a number of towns suffered fires when there was already a city fires they found out that the houses which had been done before which at
3:53 am
this kind of clearing didn't burn that easy off to. get a vine and has refined the technique for building houses facades and furniture. on an old farm about 70 kilometers southwest of amsterdam his team experiments with different kinds of wood burning methods. in 2012 peter vine ins company was among the 1st to make the technique known outside of japan. now several others offer similar products each with their own processes which they often keep strictly secret. we're very careful with it because it's a very strict procedure in which for every kind of wood we need a different kind of temperature different kind of oxygen speed etc and it took time to get so far but i think we can really make the best we can. the burning process makes the wood a long lasting and low maintenance building material it can stand at least 50 years without needing any further treatment and black is
3:54 am
a very trendy color in architecture interior designers are using more and more. for instance very tumbling gave the encore. by simonas restaurant in the hague its very own distinctive style with charred one chose this material because. as you can see we're strike lights it. gets more deft and. gold. even the trains used to serve the food are made with charred wood. and. peter vine and company employs designers carpenters and wood specialists to find new ways to use the material besides merely as decorative paneling. in the future we would like to explore making a whole furniture i think it's a unique look that you won't gets any other way. into vine and uses a blowtorch to test the fire resistance of the wood in the beginning it was the
3:55 am
primary tool and this can't i just did it for myself to make my own house and off the bits of the developments came so i started with the blowtorch and i did with the small of them and now it really does it's it's not a trick with a blowtorch it's a coffin ship that's something with a diamond which thinks concentration and i think that's that's the most beautiful thing that has a. sort of a disadvantage so i can imagine is that we can produce any color as long as it's black. or be a divine and whether interior or exteriors architecture black it's very beautiful indeed. and with that we wrap up another show but be sure to follow us on social media or check out our website for this week's drop if you enter you could become the proud owner of this i pad from me and everyone here in berlin as always thanks for watching well seeing and think.
