acoustic installations for the cultural landscape of paasdorf



Just as "Motorway" this second piece of work in the project series "Culture Landscape of Paasdorf" represents an historical approach as it captures the history of this tract of land in an acoustic portrait. Landscape also means environment, handicraft and civilization and deals with our proverbial alienation from nature in a counter-world to the landscape scenery, a world achieved by classifying historical thinking. The outer case is static with a mobile resonance box which is subject to permanent change. The earth construction is deliberately inconspicuous, smoothly blending into the landscape just as a rampart which does not reveal what is going on within its walls. Inside, however, it is full of life: You may listen to a virtual natural history of the landscape, an acoustic portrait of voices and sounds - sounds of animals living or having lived there, sounds of water (primeval sea), sounds of bells etc., only the sound of tractors has to be supplied by reality. Consisting of a solar-operated P. A. system the installation is equipped with a timer set at ten-minute intervals. According to the artists the "sounds" of nature follow specific order patterns, which are, however, not mechanical but arise from and change with changing environmental conditions. The sound modules within the "Acoustic Atoll" also arrange and rearrange themselves on the basis of the control mechanism, thus the sequence of sounds is not a static one but an acoustic sculpture which keeps changing.
