transmediale and CTM Vorspiel | Your Touch Makes The Place
Dear friends of SoundS,
SoundS will be at transmediale and CTM Vorspiel with Your Touch Makes The Place, a project by students of Sound Studies and Sonic Arts under the supervision of Sara Lehn.
It doesn’t take much to transform a place. A few years and a crematorium is a ‘Kulturquartier’. A few rearrangements and a rooftop is an aural gazebo, a silent lawn turns into a site for listening and coming together. A few compositions and this place becomes 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 its links to past and future, a vessel for memory and foreshadowing, an instrument to be activated by our voice and touch.
As part of the exhibition ‘Your Touch Makes The Waves’ by Cashmere Radio, the minimalist octagonal structure ‘monoment’ (Sara Lehn / Eric Windel) on the lawn in front of Silent Green hosts a public listening session of its recent sound art contributions. ‘Your Touch Makes the Place’ (Sound Studies and Sonic Arts, UdK Berlin) puts hands on and presents a transmediale and CTM Vorspiel special.
