It doesn’t take much to transform a place. A few years and a crematorium or a state building for statistics is a ‘Kulturquartier’. A few rearrangements and a rooftop is an aural gazebo, the Silent Lawn we turned into a site for listening and coming together. A few compositions and the ‘monoment’ became a portal to the histories of what surrounds it as well as other dimensions and realities: Suddenly, the the guardians of the dead are evoked, stories about those in the ether, that were never even alive. Connections drawn from tiny mutterings of hidden corners to their resonance across the city. The present is summoned by past and future, the presented gets picked up, the makers turn listeners.
After their transmediale and CTM Vorspiel special at Silent Green, ‘Your Touch Makes the Place’ (Sound Studies & Sonic Art /UdK) NOW enters the funky sphere… on Friday 18 Feb 2022 the few compositions will return – reworked, condensed, stretched out, embedded in the live radio performance ‘OUR TOUCH BENDS THE WAVES’. This radio edition is a listener’s digest, transforming in echoes and feeding back towards tomorrow.

Sibi Abhimanue SMSHAANA at Silent Green
Like a stethoscope, the contact microphones epitomise the contact between doctor and patient’s body. Vibrating windows, sizzling heating pipes, tinkling light bulbs… Silent Green becomes a palpitating instrument, revealing its inner aural enigmas. Sonorous hyper reality out of context, re-signified through digital processing.
Minimalist impact of repeated and compressed vocals – recorded on the concrete ramp at Silent Green.
I live with persons and stories I have only heard about. Interview passages and fieldrecordings from the Silent Green site.
Falling dust, descending in transformation. Repetition. Exhaustion. Coexisting in dissonant movements. What do we do with the little pieces? We consent to the ritualism of presence. Nothing else, nothing more.
Impulse Response based feedback composition, connecting mutual resonances of two cultural locations across Berlin. Between histories of Silent Green and a precarious 'Zukunft am Ostkreuz'
A graveyard, SMSHAANA. SMSH/shava ("corpse"), while shana refers to shanya ("bed”). An attempt to bridge the in-betweeness of MATTER AND SPIRIT endogenously/exogenically experienced in the process of leaving. The duality of life and death, of past and present meet in the “NOWNESS of the BREATH” and breath is Air/PRAANA…
