Sonic Intervention, SWEEP, AdK, Berlin 2014

Break 15 min was composed of four sound interventions in different parts of the AdK building. The pieces correspond to each other in order to create coherent site-related experience during 15 min concerts break.

One subwoofer (Föön Infra E545HL) was installed underneath the stairs of the AdK building and another in the coat check. A frequency sweep between 100 and 20Hz gradually descended and ascended throughout the 15min time frame of Break, providing a fundamental rhythmic structure that evoked actions from other elements such as lighting, projection and the 'sound showers'. The low frequencies caused architecture and furniture to vibrate, reminding us that every object and every being, contains resonate frequencies that can be activated through sound.
