#01 was realised for
the 2004 Kryptonale Festival,
and was presented
in the Großer Wasserspeicher
Wasserturm, Prenzlauerberg) as part of
the site-specific installation
called Wipp Lounge.
installation brings about a perception of sound different from what is
generally experienced. The participient is lying in a
hammock, wired in such a way as to make sounds resonate throughout his
or her entire body.
Fourteen loudspeakers are positioned in the hammock, touching different
parts of the extended body. In this way, the vibrations from the
loudspeakers become manifest and the sounds are carried, via the bones,
to the inner ear. Our most intimate space becomes a resonance body and
a changing sound sculpture.
To our ears, this inner soundspace becomes linked to the sounds
produced in the water tower. In contrast to the passive reception and
perception of the soundspace in the hammock, the architectonic body of
the watertower offers a space in which the participent has the
opportunity to alter his or her viewpoint, so as to realise his or her
own experience of the sounds. These two diametrically opposed
soundspaces have also been used by composers Paul Modler, Henry Mex and
David Monarcchi in their own 26-channel site-specific works.
