CONCRETE [kõˈkrɛt]

radical site-specific sound installation
46 channels
Bunker k101, Cologne
2016
The composition is based on my phenomenological research findings at the bunker in Körnerstraße 101, Cologne. The space was transformed by adding a dense and complex layered web of delicate sounds, creating an organic situation, offering an access to experience the bunker not as a dead place of the past but as a constantly transforming and changing gestalt that is filled with life.
All sounds in this composition were recordings of paper, for it had a quality that fit the architectural, historic and materialistic characteristics of this bunker.

Concrete Was part of the Electronic Beats Festival 2016 in Cologne.
