Walls Breathing Sound – A new Sound Exhibition at Halle am Berghain

How can you manifest sound in space? The two sound artists born in Austria and based in Berlin Sam Auinger and Hannes Strobl found an answer in their new soundscape inside the Halle am Berghain which has just opened this week for visitors.
Halle am Berghain is a majestic industrial architecture right next to the club area which has been closed for more than 4 months. Fortunately, the exhibitions have been allowed to open for a few weeks – so I highly recommend going to visit the work entitled “eleven songs – halle am berghain“
Feel the room through sound – a unique experience
When you enter the space, you first feel disoriented simply because it is so large and you have the feeling of emptiness that only these types of cathedral-style industrial buildings can express.
After walking around and admiring the surroundings, you wonder where your eyes should rest since the exhibit is invisible. The only thing that changes is the sound of different rooms going from soothing to noisy – they even make you nervous and scared at times.
What makes this exhibit particularly special is that the sound designers have managed to hide almost all of the speakers. You literally feel like the room is breathing sound.

Who is behind this unique exhibition?
The initiator of this project is called Singuhr Projekte and his artistic initiative to develop and share unique sound installations throughout Berlin. Their main objective is to offer sound art to a wider audience, open to the discovery of this particular art form in an urban environment.
