EINRAUSCHEN (A SONIC CALIBRATION) (2018)
Six-channel sound composition

Einrauschen: Installation View (2018)

Einrauschen is a six-channel electroacoustic composition made for the entrance staircase of the exhibition "[Sound] Listening to the world". The installation has been realised in collaboration with Studio TheGreenEyl Berlin.

Einrauschen was composed from material sourced from the collections of the Berliner Phonogramm-Archiv: The noise and crackling sounds of historic wax cylinder recordings were condensed and layered to form an overall, consistent noise floor playing out into the space.

The composition on the one side deals with the sonic characteristics of the historic recording medium and on the other, by making use of the sonic masking effect, forms an acoustic state separating the space of the entrance hall from the exhibition space. The title refers to the technical term of calibrating speakers to a specific listening space by using noise as a test signal.

Einrauschen has been created for the exhibition “[Sound] Listening to the world”, organized by the Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss jointly with the Ethnologischen Museum der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Kulturprojekte Berlin with the Stiftung Stadtmuseum Berlin as well as with the AMAR Foundation in Beirut, supported from the Arab Fund For Arts and Culture AFAC.
