rauschfarben (noise colours) A100 [soundinstallation]
CLB Berlin Aufbau Haus am Moritzplatz · 10969 Berlin

tamtam hears the A100 musically. The sound environment becomes instrument and the instrument sound environment. The multichannel installation rauschfarben A100 arises from this hearing perspective, engaging with sonic dimension of the city highway.

Its foundations are audio recordings made along the A100, capturing its tonal, dynamic, and rhythmic structures. These join the traffic-laden ambient noise encroaching in the CLB from Oranienstrasse and Moritzplatz. Microtonal sound layers were recorded directly on site at CLB using electric bass, in order to „tune“ the pre-produced material to the exhibition space.

In this way, rauschfarben A100 creates an atmospheric soundscape that emotionally charges the exhibition’s historical, urban planning, and city agitating dimensions. It plays with visitors’ spatial and temporal sense as the room accelerates and slows, brightens and darkens.
