SOUND SCULPTURES AT MONOM — SPEND 90 MINUTES ENVELOPED IN OMNIDIRECTIONAL AUDIO AT THE FUNKHAUS

SOUND SCULPTURES AT MONOM — SPEND 90 MINUTES ENVELOPED IN OMNIDIRECTIONAL AUDIO AT THE FUNKHAUS

As you take a seat in a darkened hall hidden deep within the Funkhaus Shedhalle building, a feeling of tense expectation falls on you and the 39 others nearby. What awaits is Sound Sculptures, an audio experience powered by a 48.9-speaker 4DSOUND system that envelops you with tones, noises, and chords that are so deep and full that you can feel and even see the sound in your mind’s eye. Each of these 90-minute sessions – there are four running every Saturday and Sunday until 01.08.2020 – brings a different soundscape from a resident artist at Monom, which is the name of both the Funkhaus venue and the Berlin-based collective behind the events. The spatial sound that emerges from Monom’s 16 speaker columns has an almost transcendent effect as you sit, lie or meditate in the middle of its aural atmospheres, and stays with you long after emerging from the concrete depths and into the sunlight. The next sessions are this weekend (11.–12.07) with sounds from Croatian Amor and Casimir Geelhoed. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Savannah van der Niet, Sophie Döring & Monom)
