The focus of the audio-visual work "Sound Spaces" is located on the soundscape of the city, of the acoustic shell, in the spatial as well as in sound-aesthetic senses. Recordings which takes place in nature, various architectures and outdoor urban public places, refer to each auditory identity of the places. With the help of creative coding a abstract representation of the acoustic shell of the city Hanover becomes possible to illustrate. An online open - source web archive the recordings including visualization archived and are available for further use. The work calls for a conscious deceleration of our overstimulated, visual society. The web archive informs and conveys the term soundscape, its origin. It is my intention to create more recognition, awareness for sounds and our acoustic environment by archiving the soundscapes, and thus to achieve the emancipation of listening piece by piece.
In collaboration with the gallery STADTARTIST, we developed a sound installation. Sound Spaces was also part of the group exhibition InsBlaue - Walk through architecture in Hannover in 2018.
All the soundscapes are binaural and were recorded with Senheiser AMBEO Smart Headset.
Please use headphones for a binaural experience.
Each soundscape starts with interviews. I asked the residents of the city which sounds they associate with each architecture.
