In 2013 we manages to get access to an abandoned spherical gas tank for one day to conduct acoustic experiments.

The acoustic properties of this space were that impressing (0.5-seconds bounce-back echo and a reverberation-time of almost one minute) that we decided to search ror more such spaces.

The initial plan to further work with this unique space was nullified by its demolition in late 2013.

Nevertheless, this was the starting-point of the rare_spaces series.

NakedVolume is a series of artistic investigations on the acoustic potential of spaces. Subject of these investigations are places that are normally inaccessible to the public.

The acoustic experiments, involving microphones and loudspeakers focus on the natural resonance frequencies and the reverberation of the space. The main research methods are controlled feedback and impulse response experiments.

The results of the investigations are condensed to 10- to 15-minute compositions. These acoustic portraits reflect the individual character of each space.
