Part 02


Sound installation

Intraregional sound art festival in the Hannover region,

Gut Harms, Poggenhagen

13.06.2021 – 26.07.2021

The two-part work at Kulturgut Poggenhagen highlights the topic of bioacoustics.

Field recordings recorded on site were used and edited for the installations.

Two installations / sound sculptures in two different locations on the large site correspond with each other. The second part is located in the Bovista. Both installations illuminate the relationship between man and nature and try to explain the balance of a biotope/collective in a sensitive way. How does nature communicate with man? What misunderstandings/ translation errors can occur?

Are we able with our sensory organs to fully perceive and understand the variety of sounds in nature?

In both sound installations, these questions are explored and translated in an artistic way.

Photographs of ecosystems are structured into arrangements. In the multi-channel sound installation, auditory perception is focused and expanded on the translated sounds of nature. In the Anthropocene, man-made sounds have become part of the natural sound spectrum. The intrusion and mixing of anthropogenic sounds in natural biotopes creates interference in the sound spectrum that leads to conflicts.

They displace and partly replace the natural sounds, the balance seems disturbed.

The sounds of the installations will soon be published on:
