Dead end?

IMAG0017At the end of the tra­di­tional car­ni­val pro­ces­sion, the wag­gons and orches­tras were sup­posed to dis­solve in a nar­row street. But they just didn’t. The Bavar­ian samba band insists on play­ing on, while a trac­tor is blow­ing its foghorns, finally giv­ing way to the dis­torted bass from other loud­speak­ers. Acousti­cally the medieval street works like an inti­mate boom­box for this lovely mess.
Recorded at Rottmayrstrasse, Laufen, Feb­ru­ary 2018


A Little Chat In The Sink


Next to his alpine hut 2000 m above sea level, the owner uses his wooden sink to draw water from the nearby arti­fi­cial lake. To make a long story short, you will hear water doing happy drum­ming, cap­tured with two piezo mics. This post­ing is the only way to avoid pub­lish­ing the beau­ti­ful silence up there, really, it could never be played back.
Recorded at Tauern­moosseealm, Hohe Tauern, Austria

Not Red

Not Red at Lake Studios

How to react to move­ment with only sound? On 16 Decem­ber 2016 I had the chance to accom­pany the impro­vised dance piece “Not Red” by Jen­nifer Ocampo and Jas­minka Stenz. It was an inspir­ing evening of con­tem­po­rary dance, also thanks to the open dis­cus­sion after­wards at Lake Stu­dios Berlin.

Siberian Shopping Terror

Irkutsk Ulitsa Uritskogo

Toy ani­mals and toy sol­diers crawl­ing on the pave­ment, posh Siber­ian high heels, mega­phones announc­ing the best deals in town, music and all other signs of a con­sumers’  mess. Ulitsa Urit­skogo in Irkutsk, from one end to the other, bin­au­ral recording.

This record­ing is part of a larger series about the sound of Siberia.
