Bangalore BANG !
by Peter Simon & Freya Hattenberger on FUNKT
The composition ‘BANGALORE BANG!’ was created from audio material collected on site during the residency at the Goethe Institute / Max Mueller Bhavan in Bangalore, India. We were particularly interested in recording the acoustic ‘fingerprint‘ of the country’s rapidly growing megacity and IT metropolis. In this audio piece, we consider the interplay of urbanism and city planning and engage with the city’s residents and their lives. Materiality, speed, urban structure and the fluid reality of Indian culture form an ornament of sound in this composition.
