1st Sound Sculptures 18.07.20 in Berlin, MONOM @ Funkhaus Berlin
Tickets for 1st Sound Sculptures Berlin
monom Presents: Sound Sculptures
monoms upcoming Sound Sculpture Gallery series will showcase new virtuosic experiments and sound sculptures of monoms past commissioned works by adventurous and experimental music innovators.
This weekend we will showcase two pieces created during our monom residencies by Alexi Perälä and Abyss X.
How to define a sound sculpture? Are Sound Sculptures collective creations? Reflections of ephemeral moments, only truly existing when heard?
Through its Sound Sculptures Gallery series, monom invites listeners to explore the depths of the unconscious as a creative space. Artists design the landscape of the journey, which takes on a new life when heard and felt with the whole body and engaged with each individual's imagination.
The listener's presence and attention is what makes these works complete.
For the next few weekends, monom will revisit 9 pieces that have been developed hand in hand with our monom team and artists in residence. Every session will create an intimate environment that welcomes 40 people to be enveloped in darkness within a 48 speaker and 9 subwoofers spatial instrument housed at monom, designed and built by 4DSOUND. Darkness reduces visual interference allowing for a more acute sense of space through sound, an invitation to surrender to the possibility of accessing a vivid alternative reality completed by each individual's own inner visions.
VERY LIMITED CAPACITY of 40 people per session.
*monom sells 36 tickets online in advance and 4 at the door + tickets that were not sold online
