accoustic experiments & site-specific composition

in collaboration with René Rissland (GER)

#4  //  feedback    2016

In 2016 we had the chance to work inside an empty storage facility that was about to be transformed into an trampoline-fun-park. The space with a length of 70 Meters, a width of 20 meters and a tunnel vault roof contained surprisingly clear single resonance frequencies.

During one day, we conducted various feedback experiments using one microphone and one loudspeaker.

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.
