Sonic Sculptures (Klang-Raum-Skulptur) by Frank Bretschneider, Julius Holtz, Richard Scott, Sven König
The collaborative project Sonic Sculpture (Klang-Raum-Skulptur) enables an immersive and three dimensional listening space. The artists researched how space can become a factor in musical composition. The result was a listening experience in which listeners are connected through immersive sound. At its core Sonic Sculptures is an extremely powerful spatial intervention: It not only reorganises musical composition but sonic, social and physical space at the same time. The inside of Sonic Sculpture wakes associations of collective and ritualistic spaces like sweat lodges or caves. Within the installation you can experience sound in a spatial continuum. The ambisonics sound system can move sound infinitely far away or make it come intimately close: Sound moves around, as well as above or right through you. Led by your ears, you’re encouraged to explore your inner and outer space in which sound appears as a physical entity. For the installation the composers Frank Bretschneider, Julius Holtz, Sven König and Richard Scott created 3-dimensional sound pieces.
