In the workshop we will deal with sound technology in a way which aims at exposing these conditions. Together we will investigate how particular characteristics of media and their technical characteristics infuse our listening, and how sound can be organised in diverse ways to focus on this aspect. For this we will operate with diverse loudspeakers in diverse constellations and spatial distributions, and will superimpose diverse methods of sound production.

Musicians are welcome to bring their instruments!
